Would it be fair to say the guy to her right might win the GOP primary, but would then have less chance in the general?

Do any of the GOP candidates claim to be "Tea Party?"

I live in Washington and only pay so much attention to Oregon politics.

Wasn't there a Republican senator from Oregon within the past 10 years?
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Gordon Smith?  Looked like Otter from Animal House?

The Pubbies may make a decent showing in Oregon this year, but I doubt one is actually going to be elected there.

OR "tipped over" to the left a long time ago.
I doubt we'll see a many Republicans from there holding national office again.

Only one national officeholder in the state right now is Republican -- Greg Walden, 2nd district -- right?

Yeah, Smith too. From 1997 to 2009.

That is encouraging. But the kind of Republican Oregon will elect, will not be popular with the self-appointed base.
