A Primary Conversations Calendar
After what seems like the longest primary season in recent memory, Oregonians will finally get their turn on May 20th. And while Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have grabbed many of the headlines in their race to be the Democratic presidential nominee, there of course are many more names on this year's ballot.
For some of the more prominent races, we're bringing candidates in for what we're calling "Primary Conversations," our take on debates: less formal (no buzzers or time limits), more intimate (with everyone sitting around the same table) and, we hope, more substantive.
Below you'll find a complete listing of our 2008 primary campaign coverage -- from dialogues spurred by the presidential candidates' Oregon events to the "Primary Conversations" themselves.
