Oct 31, 2013

Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber hasn't said whether or not he'll launch a re-election bid, but he's been busy collecting funds for one.

Kitzhaber's campaign has reported contributions of nearly $232,000 so far this year. More than half of it has come in during the last two months. He has matched the amount he raised in all of 2012.

Last month, on a two-day state-paid trip to Washington, D.C., Kitzhaber met with lobbyists, interest groups, and Democratic fundraisers in between his official meetings.

Kitzhaber has said repeatedly that he expects to make up his mind this fall about whether or not to run for a record fourth term.
