GOP Has a Chance at Oregon Governorship for First Time in Four Decades
PORTLAND—Oregonians might choose a Republican governor for the first time in 40 years, polls show, as voters look for new leadership to take on homelessness and crime and a well-funded independent candidate complicates the race.

Former Democratic state House Speaker Tina Kotek and former state House GOP leader Christine Drazan are running evenly at just under 39%, according to the polling average on the website FiveThirtyEight.

Betsy Johnson, a former Democratic state senator who stepped down to run for governor as an independent, is drawing an average of 14%, according to FiveThirtyEight.

Wood you believe it! Homeless man builds a SHED on LA sidewalk complete with electricity and a flower garden – after refusing Dem city’s temporary housing that felt like a ‘concentration camp’

  • A man experiencing homelessness, identifying as ‘Q,’ has built a makeshift home on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles – which he puts on wheels so that he can avoid being approached by police
  • The makeshift home is built from thrown-away construction site wood and stands on top of car batteries – while plants decorate the exterior
  • ‘Q’ is ‘self-employed,’ fixes bikes and wants to start his own business as a mechanical engineer
  • He denies public housing because his makeshift home ’empowers’ him, while some living options feel like ‘concentration camps’ 
  • A native of Kansas City, Q has lived in the city for a few years and has been taking shelter inside his sidewalk shed for a few months, and locals say that they don’t mind him being set up there 
  • Sagging tents, rusting RVs, and makeshift structures have become commonplace along Hollywood Boulevard to Venice Beach – and even in the shadow of City Hall
  • Homelessness in Democrat-led LA has become a massive issue since the coronavirus pandemic
