They're still counting in the Oregon governor's race but all that's left at this point is Multnomah County, i.e. the Portland area, and that bodes well for the Dem, John Kitzhaber.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Democrat John Kitzhaber was whittling down a slim lead by Republican Chris Dudley as the last ballots were being counted statewide in the race for governor....
With nearly 1.3 million ballots counted, Dudley had just over 49 percent while Kitzhaber had a little over 48 percent of the vote.
But roughly one-fourth of the Multnomah County ballots had yet to be counted by 9 a.m. Wednesday, and Kitzhaber was outpacing Dudley by nearly 3-to-1.
Statistically, Kitzhaber should be able to overtake Dudley and win with somewhere around 3,000 votes. Hopefully, the counting will be wrapped up today, but it could take into tomorrow to have this one finalized.
Outside of this tight race, Oregon was pretty much immune to the red tsunami, returning all of it's Congressional incumbents, with Dems holding the Senate seat and keeping four out of the state's five House seats, the status quo that's held there for years.
