Host Geoff Norcross talks with OPB Senior Political Reporter Jeff Mapes, reporter Amelia Templeton and News Director Anna Griffin.

We’ll discuss the local repercussions of police shootings in Minnesota and Louisiana and the deaths of five police officers in Dallas Thursday. We’ll also dig into the controversial measures headed for the Oregon and Washington ballots and kick around the remote possibility of Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley as Hillary Clinton’s running mate. 

And this week’s “That’s So Oregon” segment includes a heartwarming story of a citizenship naturalization ceremony at Crater Lake on July 4.
