(Portland, OR) -- A new Elway poll shows Governor John Kitzhaber with a seven-point lead over his GOP challenger. The survey, commissioned by KGW-TV and "The Oregonian," shows Kitzhaber with 45 percent of the vote, state Representative Dennis Richardson with 38 percent, and nine percent are undecided. The same poll shows Democratic incumbent U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley leading his Republican challenger, Doctor Monica Wehby, by a margin of 49 percent to 30 percent. A measure that would legalize recreational use of marijuana and the GMO labeling measure are both too close to call.
