Jeff Mapes at the Oregonian is reporting that Clackamas County Commissioner Tootie Smith, a Republican, has announced that she will be exploring a run for Oregon’s Fifth Congressional District (CD-5) for the seat currently held by U.S. Rep. Kurt Schrader (D).

Tootie was elected as a Clackamas County Commissioner last November, and she has previously served in the Oregon State Legislature as a State Representative, from 2001-2005.

    More power to her if she has the CD-5 numbers, but Kurt Schrader probably has a lock on the seat unless he somehow Wu’s up like what embroiled over in CD-1. Then again, populist Dems there saw fit to nod off an tip the seat over to Susan Bonamici, another Dem rubber stamp like Charlotte Lehan.

    Can she keep her seat on the Clackamas County Commission while she runs for Schrader’s seat? If so, it’s not so bad an idea. If otherwise, not so great for Clackamas County conservatives.

    Frankly anything that gets people with names like “Tootie”, “Madge”, “Juanita”, “Red” or “Floyd” in congress is probably a good thing.

    Fascinating that a less than one year County Commissioner believes she has what it takes to unseat a widely supported Congressman that has a substantial war chest and popular votes in the house. There are better strategies that can be played out by these new Republican County Commissioners that think they can unseat Representatives that have a track record of trying to get something done. If one of these Commissioners were in CD1 or 3 I might think differently, but we must have candidates that have some record of legislative understanding for them to be relevant when the get to DC. Tootie Smith will not serve her constituency in Clackamas County while she chases her fantasy of a CD5 seat. If she were noble to the electorate, she would resign her Commissioner role and pursue this wild eyed dream without the paycheck from Clackamas County taxpayers while doing it.
