Three third party candidates running to be Oregon’s governor got their first chance to share their ideas with an audience Saturday.
Aaron Auer, of the Constitution Party; Chris Henry, the Progressive Party candidate; and Jason Levin, from the Pacific Green Party, joined Republican Rep. Dennis Richardson and Democratic Gov. John Kitzhaber on stage for the League of Oregon Cities governor’s debate.
Henry, who works as a truck driver and is completing his bachelor’s degree, admitted he’d face a steep learning curve if elected.
