Greg Nickels Announces Run for Secretary of State

SEATTLE (AP) — Former Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels will run for Washington secretary of state.

Nickels, who was defeated in 2009 after two terms as Seattle’s top elected official, says he’s looking for a new challenge. He formally announced his candidacy Thursday. The Democrat Nickels says he wants to continue the tradition of nonpartisan administration of the state’s election laws that Sam Reed, the current office holder, has established. Reed, a Republican, is retiring at the end of his current term.

Other candidates vying for the secretary of state’s job include state Sen. Jim Kastama, D-Puyallup and state Rep. Zach Hudgins, D-Tukwila.
