The current version of Oregon's 2nd Congressional District has never elected a Democrat to represent it.
The district stretches from Grants Pass to the Idaho state line, and contains far more registered Republicans than Democrats. But Jamie McLeod-Skinner is putting great effort into capturing the congressional seat from 20-year incumbent Greg Walden.
McLeod-Skinner joins us to talk about her qualifications and positions.
Greg Walden has been invited, and we are awaiting a reply on a later date for him.
CORRECTION: A previous version of this interview incorrectly stated Mcleod-Skinner is a lawyer. While she has a law degree, she is not technically a lawyer.
