Under normal circumstances, incumbent members of Congress are assumed to be running for re-election unless they say otherwise.
But given all that's transpired and been revealed about Congressman David Wu in recent days, lots of political observers have been wondering aloud whether he intends to run again.
It turns out that buried deep in an Associated Press story earlier this week, his spokesman indicated that yes, Wu's running again:
Wu's spokesman said the congressman has no plans to resign and will seek re-election in 2012. "It will be up to his constituents to decide whether he's proven himself," Dorey said.
I spoke with Dorey on Friday afternoon and confirmed that statement.
The questions for you, BlueOregon readers, are these: What will it take for you to support Wu again in 2012? Are on board already? Are you definitely off the Wu bandwagon? Or are you, like me, still sorting it all out? And if so, what do you need to hear from Wu?
