Rossi tries to appeal to convention watchers….

As Republicans on the stage in Denver are giving speeches saying they plan to cross party lines and vote for Obama, in Washington state, Republican gubernatorial candidate is apparently hoping to get some Democrats going the other way.

Rossi will be airing this video on network and cable stations statewide before and after Obama's primetime speech at 7:15 p.m. tonight.

"Tonight the Democrats have a nominee. I agree with them on this: change is needed," Rossi says in the video. "But not just in Washington, D.C."

In the ad (and on the campaign trail), he makes an appeal for a philosophical majority behind fiscal responsibility, and pledges to reach across party lines.

Short takes and breaking news from the Washington Legislature and the state capital.
