What were voters thinking? A look at midterm election results
Voters were angry, distrustful of political insiders and worried about government spending - at least that's the narrative provided by the majority of political pundits. How Oregon voters chose to express their feelings proved far more complex. They said no to a casino and medical marijuana, yes to building more prison space and funding the Oregon historical society and were pretty divided on who should be serving as governor.
This week, Jo Ann and Dave will sort through the midterm results to see what messages voters were trying to send and what it means for Oregonians. Join the conversation and share what made you glad and what disappointed you in this election.
