    I live in Linn County, outside Brownsville. You really are spot on with your analysis.
    Re: Linn County: one of the reasons I enjoy living where I do is EVERY person I can vote for in a partisan office---from lowest state rep to President---is a DEMOCRAT!
    (The other Congressman who shares this county Schrader, is also a Democrat) I don't know how the state jurisdictions run but my state reps are Barnhart and Lively.
    So Linn County may "lean red" but there's a significant patch of blue here and there.

      the only blueish parts are northeast in the mountains, and parts of Albany. Really. I'll address that in a future diary, though. The way the districts are drawn are really beneficial to the few Dems who do live there, though.

      ...better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity, than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. -FDR, 1936

        Ive talked to him a few times at town meeting, he's a good man. Just saw him in our Pioneer Day PArade, he seemed popular
        Ive met or shook hands with almost all the  politicians on my list, Oregon's that kind of state:  Barnhart, De Fazio,(Schrader, too) Kitshaber, Merkley, Wyden. It sure helps all these people are Dems. I met most of these people at the Albany Veterans Day PArade, which I go to every year. Largest Veterans day parade west of the Mississippi
