It must be racist or something.
The Democratic Party of Oregon is taking reservations on its website for President Barack Obama's appearance next Wednesday in Portland to support John Kitzhaber's campaign for governor.Dudley was a longtime NBA player and an Ivy Leaguer. You'd figure those qualifications would merit Obama's support. Except he's a Republican in a tight race with a Democrat, of course.
The event begins at 4 p.m. at the Oregon Convention Center.
The Register-Guard reports the audience will have to go through airport-like security. No signs or banners will be permitted.
Former Gov. Kitzhaber is in a close race with Republican Chris Dudley.
Obama's brother-in-law is the coach at Oregon State. If the Democrats can't win in liberal Oregon then they're doomed nationwide.
