Primaries are more partisan than General Elections; so how partisan will this week's election be? Former Bend Mayor Bruce Abernethy, who ran for the State Legislature in 1994, says he's seen politics become even more partisan in recent years. And he thinks that's a bad omen for getting things done. “For me, I consider myself a moderate Democrat. For me I'm worried about the lack of moderate Republicans. There are fewer people who will reach across the aisle. People like Dick Lugar and Orrin Hatch. The partisanship is increasing. People who are willing to compromise are being punished by the Republican Party.” Abernethy faults both Republicans and Democrats for rewarding increasing partisanship at the expense of working across party lines.
