[Editor's note: We asked this question about Vicki Walker, so we'll ask it about Rick, too. Same post, details changed.]
Of course, a gubernatorial primary challenge against the incumbent, Ted Kulongoski, is a tall order - especially given the fundraising gap.
So, the question for Blue Oregonians... If you were advising Rick Metsger, what would you suggest as the best way for him to advance his policy goals? A very tough race against Governor Kulongoski - or a re-election campaign against whoever the Republicans put up?
