Primary Conversations: Oregon Races

OPB | April 30, 2010 9 a.m. | Updated: Sept. 10, 2013 9:23 p.m.

Oregon’s Democratic and Republican primaries have some pretty interesting races this year. In the 1st Congressional District, incumbent David Wu faces challenger David Robinson. And on the Republican side, candidates are lining up to run against the winner. In the 5th District there’s a heated race on the GOP side to determine who will face freshman Congressman Kurt Schrader in November.

Then there’s the hotly contested state legislative races. In eastern Oregon, for example, Greg Smith has never faced a primary challenge, but this year he’s fighting a spirited campaign with former Union County Commissioner, Colleen MacLeod.

And of course, there’s the closely watched Gubernatorial race. Next week the Democratic and Republican candidates will join us for a couple of special shows (and you can join the audience too!), but in the meantime we’ll get a preview of what to expect.

What races are you watching? Will you vote in the Democratic or Republican primary? Are you following any statewide campaigns? Who are the candidates that impress you? Why?
