So a few weeks back, I let the Kossacks know I was running for office
in my state House of Representatives. I also mentioned
the guy currently in my district's seat might get himself appointed to the state senate after a resignation there.
Well the smoke has cleared somewhat and I am still unsure who I will be squaring off with in November.
The appointment was made today - we already knew it wasn't going to be my incumbent. But we also have heard murmurs that he isn't going to seek re-election anyway. So the next variable was who was his Heir Apparent. And THAT person is the gentleman who actually just DID get appointed to the Senate Vacancy, so he is off the table as a potential foe for me.
Filing Deadline is March 9, and there is no way on God's green Earth that the GOP is going to let this seat slip away, so SOMEONE is going to file here very soon. And whoever it is, they will get a bundle of money dumped in their lap right away.
I have mentioned in several diaries what the cash flow imbalance has been for this seat, and repeat my $15 challenge!
If we can pick this seat up, the GOP will have it's grip on the Oregon House jarred nearly loose!
