Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson announced Thursday he will run for re-election.

Ferguson made the announcement in a Tweet, which also mentioned his support for Governor Jay Inslee. Inslee announced Thursday he would run for a third term as governor.

Ferguson’s full statement reads:

Governor Jay Inslee should be proud of his success promoting climate change as an urgent issue demanding immediate action. There would not be climate town halls if it were not for Jay Inslee calling for a real climate change conversation. I’ve spoken with Washingtonians across the state who appreciate Governor Inslee working to highlight Washington state’s leadership, including our efforts defending workers, enforcing civil rights, protecting our environment, growing our economy — and our undefeated record stopping the harmful policies of President Trump. I support Governor Inslee’s re-election and I will pursue another term as Attorney General.

Ferguson and Inslee’s current terms end in 2020.
