Democratic Primary Sets Up for Oregon Governor
Democrat Bill Bradbury is entering the Oregon governor's race. At least, that's what we can infer from the endorsement video posted on his YouTube site.

Bradbury, who has served as Oregon's secretary of State from 1999 to this year, also was the 2002 challenger to GOP Sen. Gordon H. Smith. He was widely expected to enter the governor's race Thursday but his campaign jumped the gun when they released a video endorsement from former Gov. Barbara Roberts.

"Bill Bradbury is my strong choice for governor of Oregon," Roberts said in a Web video.

Bradbury's entry to the race sets up a Democratic primary battle between Bradbury and former Gov. John Kitzhaber (1995-2003), who announced his candidacy Sept. 2.

The race is an open-seat contest because term limits prevent Democratic Gov. Theodore R. Kulongoski to run for re-election.
