    I thought Oregon no longer had term limits; maybe that was the state legislature I was thinking of.

    Fixing...

    The Republican Party is neither pro-republic nor pro-party. Discuss!

    •  People who I've heard have been interested on (0+ / 0-)

      the Dem side include Ron Wyden's chief of staff, Josh Kardon, former Clackamas County Commissioner Michael Jackson, Congressman Peter DeFazio, State Senator Vicki Walker, State Senator Mark Hass, State Senator Rick Metsger, SOS-elect Kate Brown, AG-elect John Kroger, Treasurer-elect Ben Westlund, and already announced that he intends to run, outgoing SOS Bill Bradbury.  DeFazio would be our strongest.  When he announced he would not challenge Gordon Smith, he declared he was mulling over a run for Governor, and has indicated since then his continued interest.

      On the Republican side, Gordon Smith and Congressman Greg Walden are probably the strongest potential candidates, with likely losers State Senator Bruce Starr, State Senator Jason Atkinson, and Republican nominees for State Treasurer and SOS, Allen Alley and Rick Dancer, also previously mentioned as interested.

      -5.38, -5.90 Deus mihi iustitiam dabit.
