Oh Boy: Republican Challenger Leads Democratic Incumbent in Senate Race in... Oregon

Dr. Wehby released that great ad "Trust" a few weeks back, bragging on herself for saving children on a daily basis.

As Mark Pryor would say, she has a real sense of entitlement.

But apparently some voters think maybe she would be a good Senator, because she now has (per one poll) a not-statistically-significant lead of one point over Jeff Merkely, 40-39.

The poll also indicates that a plurality of voters in the deep-blue state see Obamacare as a mostly failed venture. Forty-six percent of respondents said Obamacare and Cover Oregon, the state’s disastrously flawed health care exchange, were failures, while 17 percent said they were successes, and 37 percent said they were “somewhere in between.”

And she's running against Obamacare, naturally. Another ad "signalized" her day job as a pediatric neurosurgeon, declaring it wasn't "brain surgery" to conclude Obamacare was a failure.
