Brown, Pierce meet in final gubernatorial debate


PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Gov. Kate Brown and GOP challenger Bud Pierce attempted to draw contrasts with one another in their last pitch to voters on a debate stage.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports ( ) Brown touted her 25 years of elected service during the event in Portland, arguing that’s why voters should choose her Nov. 8.

She spoke of a minimum wage increase passed on her watch, demanded more money for foster children and said she’s made a career out of helping and defending domestic violence victims.

Pierce said Brown’s record is proof that it’s time to elect people who can solve the problems that need to be solved.

Both candidates want to fill the final two years of the term John Kitzhaber would have served if he hadn’t resigned in February 2015 amid allegations and investigation of influence-peddling.
