Attorney General John Kroger stepping down

by NW Spotlight

Reed College has announced that it has selected Oregon Attorney General John Kroger as their new president. The Oregonian is reporting that Kroger will likely step down before his term ends in January – he will start at Reed in July – and noted that Kroger had announced last October that he wouldn’t be seeking re-election due to health concerns.

Two Democratic candidates are currently running for Attorney General: Ellen Rosenblum and Dwight Holton. The winner will be determined in the May 15th Primary. There are no Republican candidates for Attorney General.
