Attorney General Bob Ferguson, who previously represented Shoreline and Lake Forest Park on the King County Council, formally announced his campaign to succeed Jay Inslee as Washington state governor at a packed rally at the Washington Hall Ballroom, 153 14th Ave, Seattle on Saturday, September 9, 2023.

Washington political figures spanning the Democratic ideological spectrum and multiple generations of Democratic leadership in Washington attended the rally.

Notable attendees included Governor Jay Inslee and his wife, Trudi, who today announced their endorsement of the Ferguson campaign, former Governor Chris Gregoire, King County Executive Dow Constantine, U.S. Representatives Suzan DelBene and Pramila Jayapal, King County Councilmember Girmay Zahilay, and Bob’s wife Colleen and their twins, Jack and Katie.

“I’m grateful for the outstanding support we’ve earned during the exploratory phase of this campaign — including from Governors Inslee and Gregoire, as well as unions statewide, Planned Parenthood, Pro-Choice Washington, small businesses, local Democratic Party organizations, and thousands of individuals throughout the state,” Ferguson said. 
“As Governor, I’ll take on tough challenges with bold leadership and policies that center the people of Washington. I’m excited for the months ahead as we continue building our grassroots campaign.”

I don't think Bob has been very good for Washington as attorney general. He's like the left wing version of Ron DeSantis. He seems to focus most of his energy on culture war distractions. He only represents people who share his narrow views.

We have terrible drug use, homelessness and crime that are not being addressed. We need a unifier to address these challenges head on. Bob has chosen to divide people instead. He represents the status quo, so I'll be voting for someone else.
