Jim Huffman Set to Announce U.S. Senate Campaign
On Thursday, March 4th, Jim Huffman will announce his entry into the United States Senate race for the seat occupied by Sen. Ron Wyden. The announcement will take place at the headquarters of The Halton Company at 4421 NE Columbia Blvd, Portland at 5:00 PM.
The Halton Company, which recently celebrated its 70th year in Oregon selling and servicing the CATâ„¢ line of heavy equipment, has been hit hard by the recession. “It is entirely appropriate that I should announce my candidacy at the headquarters of this great Oregon company,” said Jim Huffman. “My campaign will be about jobs for Oregonians. Halton Company is a bellwether for the health of the Oregon economy.”
Huffman served as Dean of the Lewis & Clark Northwestern School of Law from 1994 through 2006, when he stepped down to continue teaching as the Erskine Wood Sr. Professor of Law. Prior to becoming Dean, Huffman taught law at Lewis & Clark since 1973.
