President Obama’s West Coast swing included a stop in Portland. In a speech at the Oregon Convention Center, Mr. Obama told the party faithful that U.S. economic policy shouldn’t favor companies that ship jobs overseas.

President Barack Obama speaks at a fundraiser in Portland July 24, 2012.

“Let’s give tax breaks to companies that are investing right here in Oregon, right here in the United States of America, and putting Americans workers back to work making American products.  That’s why I’m running for a second term.”

In other Oregon political news, a measure that would allow non-tribal casinos qualified for the November ballot.

And heads don’t exactly roll at the Oregon Department of Revenue over a massive tax fraud.

Bill and Jeff are here for our weekly chat about Oregon politics.  Bill Lunch is OPB’s Political Analyst.  He’s at the OSU Media Center.  Jeff Mapes is the senior political reporter for the Oregonian.
