Part of Series:

All kinds of political intrigue this week.  The legislature approved a state redistricting map with surprising bipartisan support. 

The legislature also rather easily approved a state health insurance exchange, as called for by the national health care law.

Across the Columbia, politics also sprang forward, as Republican Attorney General Rob McKenna announced that he will run for governor. 

Things are so interesting here, we don’t even need to talk about Anthony Weiner. 

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 for The Oregonian; he’s on the line.
