Rosen in for Spellane’s seat

A few weeks ago, he was too tired to pursue his race for mayor. Now, City Councilor Gary Rosen says he will run for State Rep. Bob Spellane’s seat in what is expected to be a crowded 2010 race.

Spellane announced today he would not seek reelection next year.

Rosen says he had “no idea” Spellane was dropping out when he quit the mayor’s race.

Other potential candidates rumored to be in the race include Councilors Rick Rushton and Joff Smith.

Rushton says he is focusing on his race for reelection, and says, “I don’t think so,” when asked if he’ll consider the state seat.

On the other hand, Smith doesn’t answer any questions about his post-November plans, repeatedly stating, “I am focused on reelection to District One. My only focus is on reelection.”  Our best guess?  He’s in.
