    What's the word on the ballots coming in so far? What are the Dem numbers?

    Interesting articles:

    First this: "The Kulongoski campaign just announced that the campaign has raised over $45,000 from online donors..."

    Then a few down there is this one: "Saxton takes nearly $2 million from polluters"

    I may be wrong, but I still think that the candidate with the most campaign dollars is going to win this one. In Oregon, money equals speech, and in campaigns, the more you are out there in front of the voters, the better you will do in the election.

    If elections were won by the candidate who got more small or medium donations from the grass (or net-) roots donors, then likewise, marathons would be won by the runner who had made the most number of steps. But the winner of the "most steps taken" is generally the runner with the shortest legs, not the runner with the shortest time start to finish. Of course, I could be all wrong about that.

    Ted K needs votes more than money at this point. The last couple of polls are discouraging. Do any of you well connected political types have any newer polling data than the Zogby or Riley Research numbers? Those are pretty scarry for Ted. How could the margin have slipped to 1 or 2% when Ted had a 10 point lead not that long ago?

    Huh?

    Other than one poll, Ted's been consistently up by 3-5 points or so. In fact, the poll numbers have been among the most stable of any competitive race in the country.
