First Gubernatorial Debate Fueled By High Schoolers' Questions

Oct 3, 2018

The major party candidates for Oregon governor faced off on a debate stage for the first time last night.


Democrat Kate Brown, Republican Knute Buehler and Independent Party candidate Patrick Starnes have agreed to debate three this month.  This first forum was unusual in that the questions came from kids.


OPB political reporter Lauren Dake was at Roosevelt High School in North Portland for the debate. She talks to KLCC's Brian Bull about the issues raised by the audience.
