By Reagan Knopp

Labor Commissioner Val Hoyle has officially thrown her hat in the ring for Congressional District 4 as was rumored earlier today. Hoyle confirmed the decision by releasing a statement on Twitter.

Other potential candidates appear to be mulling bids for the seat which DeFazio represented for 36 years. State Representative Marty Wild (D) told Oregon Capitol Chronicle reporter Julia Shumway he is considering a run.
