'Did we mention he's a Republican?'

That's the question that Willamette Week asks about House District 1 candidate Joel Haugen, as the alt-weekly lends its support to Haugen in the race for David Wu's seat in November.

It's no secret that WW has rarely met a Democrat it didn't like, and the paper endorses Haugen because he holds a variety of non-conservative positions. And yes, the O offered a one-sentence endorsement of Haugen, calling him an "articulate moderate."

But just to make it clear, a memo to Mark Zusman, Bob Caldwell and their friends: Haugen may be registered as a Republican. He may be running in the Republican primary. But he's not a Republican, moderate or otherwise.
