Does Gordon Smith have a challenger?

– Liz Mair

It appears that the Democratic Speaker of Oregon's House is getting ready to run against Sen. Smith. This is worrying because Mr. Merkley (that's the Speaker's name) is the guy who engineered the Democratic takeover of Oregon's House last year-- so he knows how to beat Republicans. It's also worrying because, apparently, polling is showing him within striking distance of Smith already.
