OR: Endorsements, gradually

The flow of newspaper endorsements running out of Washington state is off to aa slower start just to the south. But a possibly significant one did emerge today.

The Eugene Register-Guard filed its endorsement in the U.S. Senate race, for Democrat Jeff Merkley: “That background, with its invaluable international seasoning, combined with Merkley’s extensive legislative experience, make him superbly qualified to represent Oregon in the U.S. Congress. Oregonians can help bring real change to Washington, D.C., by voting for Jeff Merkley for U.S. Senate.”

Offhand guess is that the Oregonian will stick with Smith. But we’ll see.
