Election Countdown: Will November bring change or more of the same?


With only five days left until election day, campaigns are in overdrive to deliver the necessary votes on November 2. It also means the tsunami of campaign contributions is also about to crest (In Oregon, gubernatorial candidates John Kitzhaber and Chris Dudley are riding a record-breaking $15 million wave). But beneath the campaign ads, get-out-the-vote drives and other campaign action, will Oregon voters have a chance to create real change or have to face more of the same?

This week, Jo Ann and Dave take a last minute look at how the 2010 election is shaping up - what's exciting, what's not, and what smells like the Willamette after a rainstorm. Join them in sharing concerns and hopes for this election.
