OPB senior political reporter Jeff Mapes and Statesman Journal reporter Gordon Friedman join host Julie Sabatier to talk about incumbent Oregon Governor Kate Brown.

What she’s like as a person, as a politician and how Measure 97 could shape her next two years in office if she wins. (We took similar in-depth look at Brown’s Republican challenger Bud Pierce in our Sept. 23 episode.)

This week, we also answer some listener questions on ballot measures and the rules about helping someone else fill out their ballot. 

For more on Kate Brown, check out Jeff Mapes’s profile of her here and Gordon Friedman’s profile of her here.
