24. Similar story for your neighbor to the South. This was on the front page of the Oregonian today:
( We evil libruls in Portland dashed the hopes of the poor Republicans, boo hoo ... :nopity: )

After the election, Oregon Republicans are at a loss, their dreams dashed in Multnomah County

"For the third time in the past decade, Oregon Republicans went to bed on election night thinking they might have finally ended Democratic dominance of statewide races.

But like a recurring bad dream, they awoke Wednesday to see the ballots from heavily Democratic Multnomah County seal a close victory for Democrat John Kitzhaber over Republican Chris Dudley in the governor's race.

"No matter who the Republican is, there is going to be a huge spread there," Bob Repp, a West Linn attorney and Republican volunteer, said with a sigh. "There just seems to be a real rigid dogmatism that has set in in Multnomah County."

Repp's disappointment was shared widely among Republican activists who thought Dudley, a former Portland Trail Blazer with a moderate tone on many issues, could change the political dynamic in Oregon's most populous county...."
