Oregon Senator Ron Wyden says he was very proud to lead the Oregon delegation in casting votes to nominate Barack Obama for the Democratic ticket.

 

He says he and Senator Jeff Merkley took the opportunity during the convention, to sing the praises of the State of Oregon.  “It was a chance to make some our key points. Of course, our state has always been at the end of the Oregon Trail, but we feel we're in the forefront now of American innovation. Particularly in those areas that are going to lead to more good-paying jobs and have some fun and give a big shout out for Chip Kelly's Ducks and Craig Robinson's Beavers. We had a good time."

 

Wyden says he also highlighted Oregon's very successful vote by mail system; how it's being used as a template for other states voting systems.

 

He adds that President Clinton’s speech really made some "concrete cases"  to continue the course of Obama’s administration and that it really ignited the crowd.
