I’ll be out taking in all the hoopla of the night and watching election returns. KPAM has wall to wall election coverage starting with The Victoria Taft Show at 6 and News Team election coverage starting at 8pm. Stream KPAM here.
Here are the races to watch:
Marion County Circuit Judge–THE most important Judicial race in the state.
Ross Day must defeat Judge Lipscomb.
The contested race for Oregon State Supreme Court. Go Jack Roberts. Looking at a possible run off in November.
City of Portland: Hoping for a run off for Erik Sten in the fall. Go Dave Lister, go!
Metro: Hoping Tom Cox gets enough votes to head for a run off in November.
State Senate District 13: Larry George looks like he’ll knock off incumbent Charles Starr.
Multnomah County Chair: Nobody seems to care much about Ted Wheeler’s background. Voters only know he’s not Diane Linn and that will be good enough to see him to victory.
Multnomah County District 2: Jeff Cogan (Dan Saltzman’s aide) is expected to face Lew Frederick(former PPS schools spokesman and TV reporter) in the fall for the spot being vacated by Serena Cruz (-Walsh) (Erik Sten’s former aide who’s married to Tom Walsh Junior).
