An Election Conversations Calendar
As we did during the primary season, we'll be sitting down over the next two weeks with the most prominent candidates for the most prominent offices on the November ballot. These aren't debates, per se, but "Candidate Conversations": less formal (no buzzers or time limits), more intimate (with everyone sitting around the same table) and, we hope, more substantive.
The schedule is as follows:
Allen Alley (R) and Ben Westlund (D)
Aired October 20, 2008
SECRETARY OF STATE
Kate Brown (D) and Rick Dancer (R)
Aired October 22, 2008
Jeff Merkley (D) and Gordon Smith* (R)
Aired October 27, 2008
5TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT
Mike Erickson* (R) and Kurt Schrader (D)
Aired October 28, 2008
* Note: Gordon Smith declined to participate in our show. After one initial conversation, Mike Erickson's campaign did not return any of our calls. At the beginning of the Senate conversation, we talked briefly to Morgan Holm, OPB's Vice President of News and Public Affairs, about our decisions to go ahead with shows when only one candidate agreed to participate. Listen to the six minute mp3.
