This appeared in the comment thread about Clean Money elections, but it's newsworthy and deserves its own discussion, so here it is.
From Rob Kremer, the conservative candidate in 2002 for Superintendent of Public Instruction:
Tomorrow a fellow will announce his candidacy for Governor (taking on Kevin Mannix in the Republican primary) who will have a self-imposed $200 per person limit on campaign contributions.
He will challenge Ted Kulongoski and Kevin Mannix to limit their contributions likewise.
Any bets on whether either of them will take the pledge?
You heard it here first.
Not sure who he's talking about (himself?) - but if we've got Republicans announcing campaigns here, then you know BlueOregon has arrived.
