I'll start my traditional online analysis of the upcoming primary election ballot. It's still a little early. I'll work my way through the ballot beginning with the unopposed candidates.
I have no idea what's going on in the Oregon House. The Democrats are currently the majority. My quick review of the candidates show 34 Democrat incumbents and 23 Republican incumbents are re-running for their office, but I doubt incumbency means much.

Oregon State Representative, 42nd District
|[X] Jules Kopel Bailey
1-TERM INCUMBENT (2009-)
Having just moved to SE Portland last year, I don't know know anything about Bailey -- not that I really track what goes on in the legislature. I'll, of course, support the guy running unopposed.
