Election Day: What to Watch and Where to Get the Results

May 16, 2006


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).
