Democratic State Reps. Ruth Kagi and Cindy Ryu have registered their intent to seek re-election in 2012.

The two have registered as candidates with the State Public Disclosure Commission, a step that allows them to raise and spend money for the August primary and November general election. Candidates file for ballot positions in early June.

In the 32nd Legislative District, which now will include Lynnwood and part of northwest Seattle in addition to Shoreline, Woodway, south Edmonds and nearby unincorporated areas of southwest Snohomish County, Kagi and Ryu are the only candidates to register.

Kagi’s Lake Forest Park home now will be in the 46th District with northeast Seattle, but she says that she plans to move to somewhere within the boundaries of the new 32nd District. Democratic Sen. Maralyn Chase is in the middle of a four-year term.

PDC records through Tuesday show that Kagi has raised $9,102 and that Ryu has raised $37,247 and spent $13,386, with a campaign debt of $1,800.

In the 46th District, appointed Democratic State Sen. David Frockt has registered his intent to run for the last two years of the term left vacant by the death of Scott White, appointed Democratic State Rep. Gerald Pollet has registered his intent to seek a full two-year term for the House seat that Frockt vacated to take the Senate position, and Democratic State Rep. Phyllis Kenney has registered her intent to seek re-election to the other House seat. No potential opponents have registered.

Frockt has reported raising $9,313 and spending $1,565 toward a re-election bid to the House, with a campaign debt of $1,253. He probably will move the surplus to his Senate campaign account. He has reported raising $3,400 toward a campaign for the Senate. Kenney has reported raising $5,700 and spending $100 toward re-election to the House. Pollet has reported no fundraising or spending.

All incumbents are prohibited from fundraising during the Legislative session.

Let's start by spelling their names correctly: it's David Frockt and Phyllis Kenney.
