Walker and Brown announce for SOS. Is Atkinson next?

The June 29th announcement of Vicki Walker's foray into the Secretary of State's race as reported by Harry Esteve of the O prophetically batted Kate Brown's name around as a possible candidate for the job:

Others rumored to be considering a bid for secretary of state include Senate Majority Leader Kate Brown, D-Portland, and Sen. Jason Atkinson, R-Central Point.

Just over a week later, Brown made her announcement that she was getting in.

To complete the trifecta, the aforementioned Jason Atkinson will need to wade in as well.

Hmmm...Vicki Walker, Kate Brown and Jason Atkinson.

" of these things is not like the other..."

Can you guess which? And can you also guess which part of this has the greatest potential for serious political entertainment value?
