Wow, We Agree With FOX (and The Oregonian) on Something

Posted by Sarah Mirk on Wed, Nov 3, 2010 at 4:33 PM

That John Kitzhaber is going to win this race.

From FOX 12's Twitter feed:

And the Oregonian homepage is blaring:

Kitz is trailing by only 5,454 votes with 14 percent of Multnomah County ballots and 22 percent of Lane County ballots still waiting to be counted. Anyone want to burst our optimistic bubble?

UPDATE: I should note that the estimate right now is for Kitzhaber to win by about 10,000 votes... exactly like commenter Evil Wm. Steven Humphrey predicted in this morning's Good Morning News! Hooray! You get no prize at all, just recognition for being closest. (Though if the results change, I'm taking away your recognition and giving it to someone else)
