WA Attorney General Bob Ferguson

* “He’s becoming a folk hero to progressives around the country.”

* “Let me put it this way: I would be shocked if he didn’t run for something else.”
Ron Dotzauer, who managed Democrat Booth Gardner’s successful 1984 bid for Washington governor and now runs a public-relations firm

* “The fact that these are winning issues in court legitimizes his actions.”
Chad Minnick, a Republican campaign consultant

– “Could ‘folk hero to progressives’ be Washington’s next governor?”
“Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson was largely unknown outside his home state — and even within it — until he successfully blocked President Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban in February.

Since then, the second-term attorney general has repeatedly pushed back against Trump’s administration, been named one of TIME Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” and been lauded as a progressive heartthrob on the cover of a Seattle alternative weekly, The Stranger.

Observers say Ferguson’s early win against Trump has set up the 52-year-old Democratic politician to run for higher office, especially in left-leaning Washington state.
