Over at DailyKos.com, big dog blogger Kos suggests that Oregon Democrats consider running John Kroger for US Senate.
Oregon is ripe for a genuine people-powered candidate. One name I'm hearing from locals is John Kroger, a former federal prosecutor who busted mafia kingpins and Enron execs. He's been a policy aide to Bill Clinton, Tom Foley and Chuck Schumer.
Kos also mentions Steve Novick:
Another name bandied about is activist Steve Novick. Novick was the lead attorney in the Love Canal lawsuit which led to the $129 million judgment against Occidental Chemical (while serving in the Justice Department's environmental enforcement division). I guess he's short and has a wicked tongue. He's also a regular contributor at Blue Oregon.
Update: In the comments, John Kroger pulls himself out of the running for US Senate.
