An attorney you may not have heard of during the may primary is the Republican candidate for State Attorney General. Lisa Michaels chairs the conservative party Oregon. She recruited James Buchal and ran a social media write in campaign. Since moving to Oregon in 1991, Buchal has championed Libertarian causes. Buchal was the top write in candidate; but in the number of total votes he trails Democrat Ellen Rosenblum by more than 180,000.
