I've decided not to campaign for Hillary. [View all]

After closing my law practice and (soon to be) listing my house for sale, I was planning to volunteer for the campaign to elect Hillary Clinton as President. On further reflection, I think it would be better to help wherever necessary to take back the Senate.

First, we know the Republican controlled House will use any excuse, no matter how fraudulent or disingenuous, to investigate Hillary Clinton for so much as sneezing, and they've already proved willing to impeach a President for purely political reasons.

Second, Hillary will need the Senate to confirm her judicial nominations, including any Supreme Court vacancies.

Hillary needs at least one chamber of Congress if she is to have a fighting chance.

Oregon is left of center, as are our Senators. Thus, I'll be traveling to I know not where to help some Democrat take a seat from a Republican. Any suggestions?
