The two major political parties tend to hog the spotlight in political campaign season. 

And the contentious race for Oregon Governor has only further focused attention on Democrat John Kitzhaber and Republican Dennis Richardson.

But there are four minor-party candidates for governor as well, and they will get a chance to explain their policy positions in a debate on JPR on Friday, October 17th at Noon.

The debate is produced by Oregon Public Broadcasting as part of its "Think Out Loud" program; JPR will carry it on the News & Information Service.

Participants will be:

"Think Out Loud" host Dave Miller will moderate.

Geoffrey Riley is a graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism and has hosted the Jefferson Exchange on JPR since 2009. He's been a broadcaster in the Rogue Valley for more than 35 years, working in both television and radio.
