The Republican Candidates In Oregon CD-4

oregon_congressional_districts.png

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). 

Curry County Commissioner Court Boice also is making a bid for a move to Washington, along with Jo Rae Perkins of Albany, Michael Polen of Grants Pass, and Stefan Strek of Pleasant Hill. 

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.
