OPB Politics Now: Homelessness Policy, Campaign Finance And More

This week, OPB Senior Political Reporter Jeff Mapes and News Director Anna Griffin join host Geoff Norcross to discuss Donald Trump’s recent visit to Washington state and dig into the policies designed to address the increasingly difficult homelessness problem in Portland. We also look at who is donating to presidential and gubernatorial campaigns in Oregon and talk about why a state senator refused to meet with a constituent who was part of the armed occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge earlier this year. And, of course, we make fun of the state we love with our “That’s So Oregon” segment.
