I have been salivating over the possibilities of huge Republican gains this year. I just got my voter's pamphlet. I have felt that Wyden should retire since he first went to DC in 1974. He has been there without let up nearly 40 years. My hopes are now dimmed. He still needs to retire. The likelyhood of it happening has been pushed back another 6 years. My favorite candidate for governor is on a tear in facebook on a subject I don't care about. We may have a democrat for governor like we have since 1978 I am officially bummed.
