OK, people, if you haven't started volunteering and donating yet, now is the time.
Over at big-time lobbying firm Conkling Fiskum McCormick, they're making predictions "based on an evaluation of polling data, media coverage, campaign momentum and strategy". And they're calling it a disaster for Democrats:
* GOP gubernatorial challenger Ron Saxton edges incumbent Governor Ted Kulongoski.
* Measure 48, the proposed state spending limit, fails, but Measure 41, which increases the personal deduction on state income tax returns, is a closer call and still could win.
* Republicans narrowly hang on to control in the Oregon House, maybe with a slim 31-29 majority.
* Democrats also narrowly retain control in the Oregon Senate, with a 16-12 advantage over Republicans and with two independents.
As they say in sports, though, there's a reason they play the games. Betting lines don't win; better teams do.
Remember, campaigns are all about turnout. And when Democrats turn out, Democrats win.
What are you going to do about it?
