Senate Race: Merkley Ahead in Oregon

Here in Oregon, the race for President is less interesting than the race for congressional seats.  Obama is the clear winner here.

But, it’s been a battle for the senate.  According to, Merkley is ahead of the incumbant Republican Senator Gordon Smith by nearly 5 points.

Nationally it’s still tight, but the Dem’s seem to have a slight lead and end up with both the white house and the congress at the same time.  That’ll be a first since 1992.
