Republican Greg Walden has repesented Oregon's 2nd Congressional Distrct in the US House of Representatives since 1999. His seat has been considered one of the safest in Congress.

A week ago, Walden announced he would not run again in 2020. This surprise announcement has many observers of Oregon politics scratching their heads.

We'll talk about Walden's decision, and what comes next, with Oregon Public Broadcasting's politics and government reporter, Dirk VanderHart.
