Primary Conversations: Governor (R)

Pete Springer/OPB


We’re LIVE VIDEO-STREAMING tonight’s conversation from 7-8pm.


When we had the Democratic candidates for governor here this week it was almost like eavesdropping on a conversation between friends. The two men, though they’re running against each other now, have a 30 year history of being close.

This conversation will be quite different. The four Republican candidates for governor who will join us couldn’t be more different. There’s the founder of the semiconductor company Pixelworks, Allen Alley; the former Blazers player, Chris Dudley; the state senator John Lim; and the state’s initiave king, Bill Sizemore.

Among other things, when they’re together they discuss whether the state needs an insider or an outsider as the head of the state in Salem. They explore jobs, economic growth, taxes, and government spending. With us they’ll talk about all of that — and answer your questions. What do you want to know from these candidates who are running to become the next governor of Oregon?

You can post your questions for the candidates here or show up for the live event and have a chance to pose them in person.

This show will be recorded for TV and radio, in front of a studio audience, on Wednesday, May 5th at 7 pm at OPB in Portland. Everyone is welcome. Seating will be first-come, first-seated and the doors open at 6 pm.

It will broadcast on Thursday, May 6th at 9 am (and 9 pm) and on OPB TV at 9 pm.
