Eye on Northwest Politics: Sen. James Manning, Jr.
There's an interesting race shaping up for Oregon's next Secretary of State after the Shemia Fagan scandal. Since current Secretary of State Lavonne Griffin Valade says she's not seeking the position permanently, two prominent Democrats have already thrown their hat into the ring: State treasurer Tobias Read and this week's guest on "Eye on Northwest Politics," state Senator James Manning, Jr.
First elected to the legislature in 2016, Sen. Manning is one of the legislature's highest-ranking members, serving as senate president pro tempore. He represents District 7, which includes Northern and Western Eugene in Lane County.
