Once more from the mist.
In the fourth part of an occasional series, we’re in Oregon, where Democrat Jeff Merkley is challenging Republican Gordon Smith for the United States Senate.
Merkley led a band of progressives to take control of the Oregon House eighteen months ago, and has used his tenure as Speaker to fight for health care, family-wage jobs, and environmental legislation, and against payday loan scandals. Merkley is the first Oregon Democrat to serve as Speaker in 16 years. Before entering politics, he ran Habitat for Humanity in Oregon and served as a national security analyst at the Pentagon and in Congress.
