Spring officially sprung this week, but nobody told the weather. Snow, rain and cold weather presented the opportunity to look inward to another week of political developments in Oregon.
Republicans were unhappy that Sec. of State Kate Brown ruled the election for state labor commissioner should be held in November rather than May.
In the primary, it looks like Sen. Chris Telfer, from central Oregon, suddenly faces a serious challenge.
And in other election news, a group called “Americans Elect” submitted signatures that probably will allow them to put a candidate for president on the ballot in November.
It’s our Friday morning look at the political developments of the week with our political guys Bill and Jeff.
