Money and politics were walking hand-in-hand through the Oregon rain this week. 

In the 1st Congressional District, there has been lots of money raised, as well as endorsements earned. In rural Oregon – and Washington – there is anxiety about federal timber payments. And in Portland, Eugene and Corvallis, protesters who object to how money drives politics in this country were in the streets.

To review these developments, our political guys, Bill and Jeff, have joined us again. 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. Click the audio link above to hear the full conversation.
