Rossi not appealing Washington gubernatorial ruling

[JURIST] Washington state GOP gubernatorial candidate Dino Rossi [campaign website] announced late Monday that he would not appeal the ruling of a Washington state judge [JURIST report] upholding the heavily disputed 2004 gubernatorial election of Democratic Governor Christine Gregoire [official website]. Without expanding upon his comment, Rossi stated that the "political makeup" of the state's Supreme Court would make it almost impossible to overturn the ruling. The Seattle Times has local coverage.
