Kim Thatcher Runs For Oregon Secretary Of State

The race for the White House has a way of obscuring a lot of down-ballot races and measures, and this year that effect is magnified. That said, there's a lot down there to vote upon.

Oregon will choose a new Secretary of State, since Bev Clarno is an interim, appointed after the death of Dennis Richardson. SOS is an important office in Oregon, since its occupant is next in line to be governor; that's how Kate Brown first became governor.

Kim Thatcher is the Republican candidate, facing Democrat Shemia Fagan. Both are currently members of the State Senate. Kim Thatcher is our guest.
