Political Chat: Odd Numbered Year No Break From Politics

And here you thought — in this odd-numbered year — you could enjoy a break from politics. No such luck.

It’s recruitment season for next year’s election, and both major parties are seeking out candidates to run. We’ve got two for the Congressional race, and some familiar names are running for offices in Multnomah County.

In the meantime, voters in Washington will have to decide whether they want to require labeling of food with genetically modified ingredients … not next year, next month.

No rest for our weary political guys, who join us Fridays to review the week. Bill Lunch is OPB’s Political Analyst. Jeff Mapes is the senior political reporter for The Oregonian.
