Democrats attack Dino Rossi

Written by Janet

It looks like the Democrats are getting a bit worried, as they’ve already started an attack on “possible” Senate candidate Dino Rossi, in Washington State.  If he decides to run, he would be against Patty Murray.  This attack stems from a $20,000 deliquent property tax, which is owed by his business partners.

Rossi, was a two time gubernatorial candidate and is thinking of running against incumbent Patty Murray.  He said the Democrat attacks are inaccurate, as he has no ties to the property in question…typical Democratic dirt digging.  There seems to be unpaid property taxes on a building in Everett owned by a real estate firm with ties to Rossi.  Rossi’s ties though, had they checked first, with the firm is arranged through a separate company that doesn’t have a stake in the ownership of the property. 

This shows how nervous the Democrats really are.  Polls say it is close between Rossie and Murray.  Rossi said this whole affair is an overreaction by a frightened Murray.  He said he is considering running, and this makes him consider it even more.

Democrats are trying to say this taints Rossi’s standing.  But Republicans have been trying to recruit Rossi for weeks.  And to prove the Democrats are running scared, they’ve opened a website and called it “Dirty Deals Dino”, that is trying to taint Rossi’s real estate deals as questionable. 

As for the property tax bill, Tom Hoban, chief executive of Coast Equity Partners explains that according to the lease agreement, tenants are obligated to pay the property taxes, but this company is out of business, which now leaves the bill to the investors.

Of course, Murry has no comment…..

    Rossi expected to enter Senate race soon; hires key staff

    Republican Dino Rossi is hiring key campaign staffers and is expected to officially enter the U.S. Senate race against incumbent Patty Murray as early as Wednesday.

    Pat Shortridge, senior strategist for Florida Republican Senate candidate Marco Rubio, has signed on to become Rossi’s campaign manager, according to a person directly involved with Rossi’s campaign. Shortridge, a political consultant based in Minnesota, was an aid to former House Majority Leader Dick Armey. Politico first reported that Shortridge has signed on with Rossi.

    The person involved in the campaign said earlier today that Tom Goff, who worked on former Safeco CEO Mike McGavick’s unsuccessful challenge against Sen. Maria Cantwell in 2006, would serve in a key role. However, the person now says it’s unclear if Goff will be involved, and Goff said he hasn’t been offered or accepted a job with Rossi.

    Mary Lane Strow, Rossi’s spokewoman during his first run for Washington governor, will work as part-time communications consultant.

    Rossi has publicly toyed with the idea of running for the U.S. Senate ever since a GOP pollster in January reported that a race between him and Murray could be a statistical dead heat. Subsequent polls showed that Rossi could be competitive, despite Murray’s edge.

    Thanks to his two failed runs against Gov. Christine Gregoire, Rossi arguably is the state’s best-known Republican. But he faces a dozen GOP rivals as well as Murray’s formidable campaign account of $6 million on hand.

    We have to remember here that this is a Democrat state, and Seattle area runs things, so no, I don’t believe these crooked polls. Nor do I believe democrat lies.

    New poll puts Murray over Rossi

    An Elway poll has flipped things around in Washington’s US Senate Race with Patty Murray at 50 percent to Rossi’s 41 percent.

    Last month, a KING 5/Survey USA poll had Dino Rossi ahead by seven points over Patty Murray. Then in early September, Rasmussen had him up two.

    Part of the inconsistency in survey numbers is in the way the companies do their research.

    “We use live interviewers, they use automated dialing and calling,” says pollster Stuart Elway.

    Elway says things are looking good for the incumbent.

    “There aren’t enough undecided or soft votes out there, even if you’ve got all of them, to win.”

    Elway says baby boomers and women are Patty Murray’s biggest supporters.
