Okay political junkies, especially those without television sets: here are the latest television ads in the critical, under-talked-about race to be Oregon's next Attorney General.
Attorney General candidate Ellen Rosenblum's ad focuses on children, protecting the most vulnerable, and her endorsements from various people, including Earl Blumenauer and Barbara Roberts.
Attorney General candidate Dwight Holton's ad emphasizes his endorsements by sheriffs and district attorneys, as well as Crime Victims United and the Oregon Education Association, and cracking down on sex offenders. I wonder whether his Crime Victims United endorsement will work against him in the Democratic primary. It's more likely that not many voters know who they are, and have a positive reaction to the name.
There were also two interesting recent radio pieces on this race, yesterday's OPB piece about medical marijuana advocates targeting Holton and a summary showing Holton is leading in fundraising, $420K to $290K (yes, cue the pot jokes).
What do people think?
