Response to longship (Reply #36)

39. I don't think all Senate seats are created equal.

Oregon is not going to send someone like Mark Callahan.. or Monica Wehby- or whoever else the state GOP puts up- to the US Senate. It is not happening. Not now, and not in 2018, either.

Take a look at the Primary turnout numbers.

https://ballotpedia.org/United_States_Senate_election_in_Oregon,_2016

The GOP simply cannot win statewide races. The numbers are not there. Even when we were stuck running a massively damaged governor candidate- Kitzhaber in 2014- who subsequently had to resign, he STILL beat the Republican hands down.

Now, people will say taking a Senator from a State like OR doesn't confer any electoral college advantage, since OR is so blue- and that may be true, but that's the flip side of taking a safe choice from a senate seat standpoint.

But, okay, you don't want a Senator- who do you have in mind?
