When John Kitzhaber was elected governor in 2010, he became the only person to win a third term in the state executive office. Now he’s looking to extend that legacy by seeking an unprecedented fourth term.

He has achieved recent political victories with changes to the state health care and education systems, though he has also received criticism from public employee unions for his push to reform to the Public Employees Retirement system.

State Rep. Dennis Richardson and rancher Jon Justesen — both Republicans — have also announced they will run for governor as well.
