Oregon Senate race tightening up
A reader asked me this morning if I saw the Oregon Senate race as competitive. I responded that nothing I had seen indicated that Bradbury was giving Smith any real competition. I may have spoken too soon.
The DSCC has released a poll showing Democrat Bill Bradbury within the margin of error, trailing 45-41. The DSCC claims GOP Sen. Smith is falling because of the corporate malfeasance mess:
These numbers confirm that Gordon Smith's campaign is on the run. Gordon Smith is dropping in the polls at a time when Corporate CEO's around the country are feeling the heat on corporate fraud. Bill Bradbury is well positioned to take out one of this cycles most vulnerable incumbents.If independent polls confirm the race is tightening, it would mean better financing for Bradbury's campaign as the national party and campaign donors open their wallets.
