Kitzhaber Will Announce Re-Election Bid

Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber (D), "to the surprise of almost no one, apparently plans to announce a bid for re-election Monday morning at a Portland elementary school," the Oregonian reports.

Kitzhaber "served two terms starting in the mid-1990s and won a historic third term in 2010. He has been giving signs in recent weeks that he plans to run again, identifying tax reform as his next big initiative."

"Kitzhaber's entry into the race would essentially clear the primary field of Democrats who might have gubernatorial ambitions, and would make him the immediate front-runner against any Republican in the general election."
