OLYMPIA — Republican Dino Rossi says he will release an online video announcement on his plans for the U.S. Senate race in Washington state.

Rossi sent out a note via e-mail, Twitter and Facebook to let his supporters know that the announcement will be posted on his website at 7 a.m. PDT Wednesday.

On Monday, Republican officials confirmed to The Associated Press that the former state senator and two-time candidate for governor would get into the race to unseat Democratic Sen. Patty Murray.

Republicans had been courting Rossi to get into the race, while national Democrats have been criticizing him in hopes of keeping him out.
