Primary Election 2010

Pete Springer/OPB

The primary is over, the final ballots are being counted, and we’re on our way to 2010’s general election. We’ll see a race to become the state’s next Governor between John Kitzhaber and Chris Dudley; Ted Wheeler will face off against Republican Chris Telfer to be the state treasurer; Republican Jim Huffman will run against Senator Ron Wyden; and Scott Bruun will race against Congressman Kurt Schrader.

On the morning after the election we’ll talk to candidates heading to the primary and get analysis from people who have watched the results come in. Did anything surprise you? Did your favorite candidate win, or lose? And what are you looking forward to as we head to November?
