Jamie McLeod-Skinner's Quest For Congress In OR-2

Oct 8, 2018

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.
