In an e-mail to city staff and the Troutdale city council, city councilor Barbara Kyle stated her intention to run for House District 49. In her e-mail, Kyle stated that the "Democratic Party asked me to run for HD 49." Good for Barbara.
But what about Rob Brading? In a November 10, 2006 post over at Blue Oregon, after his defeat at the hands of Karen Minnis, Brading promised, "The campaign started yesterday." Did he change his mind? Or did the House Democrats change it for him? Fascinating.
