Both Sides Now

Democratic Attorney General Candidate and nominee John Kroger appears to have won the Republican primary for Attorney General as well. The republicans had no nominee and primary voters had the choice of not voting or writing in a candidate. The major worry was that Ron Saxton would end up being the Republican nominee by virtue of an effort to get citizens to write his name in. Apparently, this was bogus as no credible effort was made to get Saxton's name on the ballot. In the end, there were something like 13,000 write-in votes in the Republican primary. When all votes were sorted and counted, Kroger had the highest write-in total of any candidate on the Republican side. So, by June 19th, when the votes are certified, Kroger should have the nominations of both parties and will be the undisputed winner of the Attorney General's mantle. Those of her at PERS Info headquarters give John our best wishes for a successful occupancy of the Oregon Attorney General's Office.

I thought it was great that 13000 Republicans opted to not lose their voting privilege on the AG position, just because no Republican chose to run. Write-ins have an effect.
