Smith’s Soft Sell Firmed Up By The NRSC

Oregon Senator, Gordon Smith, is running an ad that shows him passing hate crime legislation with Ted Kennedy (an interesting angle, given that Smith is a Mormon and the LDS Church is firmly against homosexuality).

Meanwhile, The National Republican Senatorial Committee is playing hardball on Smith’s behalf, as he faces a challenge for his seat from the Speaker of the Oregon House of Representatives, Jeff Merkley.
