2008 Here’s a Change: Gregoire on the Attack

Dino Rossi is set to officially announce his run for governor tomorrow in Issaquah and later in the day in Spokane.
The big question: What will his theme be? In 2004, you’ll remember, he ran on improving the business climate of Washington state.
Thanks to Gregoire’s success on that front, that issue has been taken away from him. At least that’s how the Democrats want to frame it.
Accused by supporters of not running an aggressive campaign in 2004, the Democrats are already coming out swinging, framing the campaign with this YouTube ad that segues from Rossi’s 2004 campagin stump speech—“Who’s really going to be able to turn around the business climate in this state? Me or my opponent?” into Gov. Gregoire’s stats on improving the business climate in this state.
Her record catapulted Washington from 12th place to 5th place in a recent Forbes ranking of best states to do business in—the biggest jump of any state. Gregoire scored a profile in Forbes annual issue thanks to the impressive ranking.
Here’s the Democrats’ hit:
