Democrat Ellen Rosenblum is sworn-in as Oregon's next Attorney General. She was appointed by Governor John Kitzhaber as John Kroger leaves the post early to become President of Reed College in Portland. Rosenblum won the Democratic primary in May, but she will still be required to beat the Republican candidate James Buchal in November to secure the position in 2013.  Rosenblum says one of her first tasks is to get to know the leaders of the eight sections within the Department of Justice and work to remedy any morale problems rumored to exist within the agency.
