Updated at 2:42 p.m. EDT
Chris Dudley continued to hold a slim lead over John Kitzhaber in the Oregon governor's race, but OregonLive.com says that projections favor Kitzhaber.
Thousands of ballots remain to be counted in heavily Democratic Multnomah and Lane counties and The Oregonian predicts that, if Tuesday's trends hold, Kitzhaber will win by
-- both with heavy Democratic majorities. An analysis by The Oregonian indicates that if last night's voting trends continue, Kitzhaber will win in a squeaker.

At least Chris Dudley doesn't have to shoot free throws to win this one.
The Oregon gubernatorial election between Dudley, a Republican and a Yalie who over one NBA season shot .319 from the free-throw line, and Democrat John Kitzhaber is still too close to call.
Best line on the neck-and-neck race? Michael Weinreb's response to the news that Dudley had a two-point lead: "Foul him! Foul him!"

Losers: Shawn Bradley (Utah statehouse race).
Too close to call: Keith Fimian
