State Rep. Chris Reykdal is officially thinking about running for state auditor.
That is, he announced today he's formed an “exploratory committee” to look into the possibility of running for the job being vacated by Brian Sonntag.
Reykdahl, D-Olympia, is the second Democrat to talk about getting into the race. Rep. Mark Miloscia of Federal Way is also in.
If you're thinking that there was a time when only presidential candidates announced exploratory committees instead of just saying “I'm running”, you're right. And you're probably kind of old.
