Oregon U.S. Representative Earl Blumenauer, a Democrat, represents the most liberal part of Oregon – his district consists mostly of Portland – but he’s been getting a considerable dousing in more conservative waters as he campaigns for Democrats elsewhere.
He is only barely opposed in this election, and so has the free time. It may turn out to be useful experience if he winds up campaigning statewide in 2008. (Okay, he’s done the disclaimers. But it remains a live possibility.)
Blumenauer’s travelogue, which includes a fairly detailed section on his stopover and campaigning in Idaho, has been posted on Daily Kos.Share on Facebook
