Chris Dudley Will Not Be the Next Governor of Oregon

Like the 1999 Knicks team he played on, the big man/Republican Dudley looked to be in good shape for a while — he appeared to be leading his opponent, Democrat John Kitzhaber, by 15,000 votes as of yesterday morning — but ultimately fell short. So what did him in? His famously bad free-throw shooting. Tens of thousands of votes began to come in from Democratic strongholds, and once they did, Kitzhaber pulled ahead. [Caucus/NYT]
