Kate Brown Runs For Oregon Governor

Brown campaign

Kate Brownbecame Oregon's governor by accident. 

John Kitzhaber's resignation in February 2015 plucked her from the Secretary of State's office and put her on the hot seat.  AND required an election for a two-year term for governor, which she is running for now. 

And Brown has plenty of company, with multiple Democrats and Republicans and even a pair of Independent Party of Oregon candidates seeking the job in the primary.  We'll know tomorrow (May 17th) who moves on to November's election; we visit with Governor Brown today.
