Join us Thursday, February 15 at 9:30 am as KBOO Board President Emma Lugo speaks with Jamie McLeod-Skinner, candidate for the 5th Congressional District in Oregon.  In 2022 McLeod-Skinner barely lost the race for the newly reshaped 5th District to Republican Lori Chavez-Deremer after beating incumbent Kurt Schraeder in the Democratic primary.  This year five Democrats have already declared themselves for what may be a highly contested primary.  We invited all the candidates to KBOO including Chavez-Deremer and McLeod-Skinner responded.
