OLYMPIA – The favorite game among the political “experts” these days is Will Rossi Run?
It’s sort of like Trivial Pursuit without the board, but the cognoscenti award themselves colored wedges by ferreting out clues as they roll the dice and run in circles. No winners yet, except maybe the polling firms, which are cleaning up.
Depending on whose poll you like in the last fortnight, Murray is comfortably ahead or Rossi is surging ahead or they’re in a statistical dead heat. Never have so many been polled so much for so little clarity.
The fact that Rossi has come no closer to announcing his candidacy than “You never say never” discourages no one from playing the game because the Legislature is out of session, the governor’s race is two years off, most of the congressional races are thought to be shoo-ins for the incumbents, and we political reporters have columns to write and expense accounts to justify.
Oh, and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, which apparently has even less to do than West Side political reporters, calls or e-mails almost daily in an effort to scuff up Rossi before he gets in the race, if he gets in the race. . .
