RUN, DINO, RUN:

Will Rossi run against Murray? Other Senate hopefuls want to know: With the Aug. 17 primary looming closer, perhaps no one is more eager for Dino Rossi to decide whether he'll run for U.S. Senate than the 11 Republicans vying to oust Sen. Patty Murray. (Kyung M. Song, 4/19/10, Seattle Times)

Chris Widener, a Preston motivational speaker and author, said he would drop his bid for the Senate if Rossi were to run.

Rossi "would be our best chance at defeating Patty Murray," Widener said. "And I'm not running against him. I'm running against Patty Murray."

Widener and his wife, Lisa, have been friends with Rossi since they joined the same baby-sitting co-op as new parents in 1992. The two men have remained close, and Widener said he speaks to Rossi regularly.

Yet, Widener said, he's just as much in suspense as anyone about Rossi's intentions.

"I think he really, truly is undecided," Widener said.
