Dino Rossi, the Republican gubernatorial nominee in 2008, will announce on Wednesday he is running for the Senate nomination, GOP sources said Monday.

The recruitment is a victory for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which has been wooing Rossi for months.

Early polling has shown that a contest between Sen. Patty Murray (D) and Rossi would be highly competitive.
