The Oregonian reports that Oregon Republican Governor candidates Marc Thielman, Stan Pulliam and Bridget Barton won the top three spots in the 2022 Dorchester poll held in the Mt. Hood Resort near Welches.  The unscientific but much anticipated straw poll was conducted by people who attended the Dorchester weekend conference or attended the dinner.   Dorchester has been a top Oregon political event for more than 50 years in Oregon.

Marc Thielman….. 53%
Stan Pulliam……… 17%
Bridget Barton…. 13%
Christine Drazan…. 9%
Others…. 1%

Ranked choice voting was used in the straw poll.
