It’s September, a month for beginnings.  Fall begins today.  School begins for kids, the TV season is underway.

In Northwest politics this week, there were both beginnings and endings.


Editor’s Note


In te broadcast version of Friday’s political chat, Jeff Mapes misidentified a nominee for the empty seat in Oregon HD 46. The candidate is Rob Milesnick.

OPB regrets the error.

Former Speaker of the Oregon House Dave Hunt announced that he’s going to run for the chairmanship of his home county commission in Clackamas County.

An effort got underway in Oregon to qualify a new political party, in anticipation of the 2012 election.

And in Washington, a new poll has good news for the Republican Attorney General, Rob McKenna.

To talk about all the new stuff, our political guys, Bill and Jeff, have joined us again this morning. Bill Lunch is OPB’s Political Analyst; he’s at the OSU Media Center. Jeff Mapes is the senior political reporter and blogger for The Oregonian; he’s on the line.
