From WWeek:

WW has confirmed that former Gov. John Kitzhaber will file paperwork Tuesday to proceed with plans to run for governor in 2010. He has notified at least three state-wide officials of his plans.

Kitzhaber previously served as Oregon governor from 1995 to 2003.

Political Wire has a list of five former governors contemplating seeking their old positions.
