Rossi in Senate Race in WA

Dino Rossi, who lost a real nailbiter of an election in the 2004 contest for governor, has decided to challenge Democratic incumbent Patti Murray for a Senate seat in Washington state. Rossi lost the 2004 and 2008 contests but appears to be, by far, the best candidate to take on Murray. This came after Rossi wasn't sure whether to run or not. Now it appears official.

According to the Real Clear Politics average, it's anybody's race. One poll has Murray up by 17 while another has Rossi up 10%. According to the average, it's:

Murray: 47%
Rossi: 44%
Undecided/other: 9%

This one's going to be a barnburner. After his previous losses, Rossi would not have entered this race unless he thought he had something to show this time around. But it's bad news for the Democrats, as it creates another competitive seat to defend.
