Broadcast: Monday, Oct. 12

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler is running for a second term, marking the first time in decades a Portland mayor has done so. He’s challenged by Sarah Iannarone. And the race comes at a pivotal time for the city: The coronavirus pandemic has radically altered the city’s budget, ongoing racial justice protests have raised questions about the city’s relationship with police, and Portland has become a touchstone in the national election. We hear from Iannarone and Wheeler about their visions for the city moving forward.
