There are three Bob Fergusons running for Governor of Washington State

There are three Bob Fergusons running for Governor of Washington State.

One of them is the attorney general, and he calls this an illegal scheme designed to confuse voters.

“We have threats to our democracy. This is a threat to our election system,” the attorney general said.

There are a total of 30 candidates for governor, the two Bob Fergusons filed on Friday afternoon before the 5 p.m. deadline.

According to the Seattle Times, one is a retired state official from Yakima and the other is a military veteran from Graham.

“Letters were hand-delivered yesterday to the homes of the other two Robert Fergusons, urging them to withdraw before today’s 5 p.m. deadline,” the attorney general said.

On social media, Glen Morgan said, “Yes, I am the volunteer campaign manager for two of the Bob Fergusons running for governor. They are both superior in every way to the AG running for the same office, and I believe they can provide better choices for Democrats in our state for that office.”

The attorney general says that if the two do not withdraw their names, they have sent a letter to the secretary of state to investigate further.

“Now I suspect the two other Bob Fergusons who were tricked into putting their names on the ballot didn’t know and were told this is a class B misdemeanor. A ‘Class B’ felony carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison, and subsection four seems like it was written for today,” said Dan Satterberg, former King County prosecutor.

To avoid confusion, in these types of situations, the state allows candidates with similar names to add information to the ballot, such as their occupation, or change their status to incumbent or challenger.

Some of the other candidates running include Democratic State Senator Mark Mullet, former military intelligence analyst EL’ona Kearney, and former King County Sheriff and Congressman Dave Reichert.
