For four straight elections, Oregon U.S. Representative Peter DeFazio (D-Springfield) has faced Republican Art Robinson in the general election for the 4th Congressional District.
That could change this November, because Robinson faces several opponents in the primary election next week (May 15th; ballots went out in late April).
The fourth district is big, running from the California state line up to the Mid-Willamette Valley, and including the whole South Coast.
We gather the candidates in person and by phone to sound out their views on the issues. Michael Polen did not attend.
