It feels like the dog days of summer, but we have a lot of action in legislative races.

In this week’s episode of “OPB Politics Now,” OPB news director Anna Griffin and OPB political reporters Lauren Dake and Jeff Mapes discuss how  harassment accusations against one Central Oregon candidate could sink Democratic hopes of a supermajority in the Oregon House.

And in the suburbs of Portland, the lone African American woman in the state house goes canvassing for votes — and gets a visit from police.

Correction: This podcast episode misstates Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel’s political affiliation. He is nonpartisan.
