Oregonian profiles Washington US Senate race

Mike McGavick comes off pretty well in this article in The Oregonian. Well, other than the fact that he is basically toast.
"We are in a blue state in a blue year, and the race is uphill," said Brett Bader, a GOP consultant who is not involved in the campaign. "I think he has closed it a bit, but you have to give a strong edge to (Cantwell). She's run a very safe incumbent-protection campaign in a good year for Democrats in a good state for them."
Even the "I'm a Dino Rossi moderate" stuff isn't working this year. Of course, we know that "moderates" like Rossi and McGavick are not, in fact, moderates, they only appear that way because the GOP was taken over by crazy people.
