Former US Rep. Les AuCoin (D-OR) has a new blog. Check it out. I volunteered on everyone of his campaigns from 1982-1992 and would still do anything for this guy. He represented a swing district and instead of walking down the middle of the road thinking about the next election he fought hard against the Reagan military build-up, he worked to help create a federal response to the homeless crisis, and became the first westerner in Congress to break ranks with the NRA and endorse gun control legislation. Now he teaches and writes. I still can't think of who to vote for in the democratic primary race for governor. Maybe I'll write-in Les AuCoin.
