Host Geoff Norcross talks with OPB Senior Political Reporter Jeff Mapes and News Director Anna Griffin, along with Gordon Friedman, who covers state government for the Statesman Journal. We’ll talk about the uneasiness some Oregon Republicans have about Donald Trump.

We’ll discuss alleged election violations in ballot measure campaigns and two different outcomes in recall elections this week in rural Oregon. 

We’ll end, as we always do, with our “That’s So Oregon” segment — digging into some quintessential Oregon stories of the week, including Portland’s own Darcelle XV earning the Guinness Book of World Records designation as the world’s oldest drag queen performer.
