King County Councilman Bob Ferguson says that he’s not concerned about having a Democratic rival in his run for State attorney general next year.

Ferguson, a Democrat, represents Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, Kenmore, Bothell, north Seattle and the rest of the 1st County Council District.

He announced Feb. 13 that he would be a candidate for attorney general in 2012.

That could mean a run against incumbent Republican Attorney General Rob McKenna, or, if McKenna makes an expected run for governor, against Republican King County Councilman Reagan Dunn.

A week later, Democrat John Ladenburg announced that he is exploring a race for the office. Ladenburg, a former Pierce County executive and prosecuting attorney, lost to McKenna in the 2008 general election by a margin of 59.5 percent to 40.5 percent.
