As Attorney General John Kroger leaves his post, the Governor appoints Ellen Rosenblum take over. Former Oregon Court of Appeals and Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge Ellen Rosenblum won the Democratic nomination for Attorney General in the May primary with more than 64% of the votes. She will be sworn in on June 29th as Oregon’s first female Attorney General. Rosenblum will still be required to run for the position in November’s General Election. An unconfirmed count of the votes in a Republican write-in campaign suggests James Buchal will be Rosenblums’ opponent in the race.
