In the state Senate, Democrats have definitely lost one seat - House District 26 where Hood River Commissioner Chuck Thomsen beat state Rep. Brent Barton, D-Clacakamas. And is sure looks to me that Sen. Alan Bates, D-Ashland has been beaten by Republican Dave Dotterrer in Jackson County.
Nov. 4 UPDATE: Sen. Alan Bates pulls ahead
