Need another political debate fix? Hey, the Democrats running for the Senate have got you covered: The four candidates (yeah, there are four in all) have agreed to four debates so far, with the open possibility of still more.
The Eugene Register-Guard's political blog lists them: January 22 at Pendleton, March 7 at Eugene, April 5 at Newport and a fourth on April 15 sponsored by KGW TV and the Oregonian, so likely though not positively in Portland. The latter two debates may not necessarily include all four, but presumably will include the two best-known, best-organized and most visible, House Speaker Jeff Merkley and Portland activist Steve Novick.
Sounds good. Interesting that the first will be in Pendleton; some road practice, maybe, before hitting the population centers?
