We’ve talked a lot about national politics this year, but local races matter too. Oregon voters are deciding whether Democrats will take back a supermajority — and face an easier path to raising taxes — in the state legislature.

And in 10 counties, they’re considering whether to give sheriffs more power when it comes to the second amendment.

In this week’s episode of “OPB Politics Now,” OPB news director Anna Griffin talks to OPB political reporters Jeff Mapes, Lauren Dake and Dirk VanderHart, along with OPB’s Guns & America reporter Jonathan Levinson about control of the Oregon legislature and about a spate of local ballot measures aimed at the 2nd Amendment.
