Republican state Rep. Dennis Richardson said Wednesday he's running for governor of Oregon. Richardson is a lawyer from Central Point best known as the top Republican legislator on budget issues. He was the co-chairman of the Legislature's budget committee when Republicans shared power with Democrats after the 2010 election. He's a Vietnam veteran originally from Los Angeles and has served in the Legislature since 2003. Democratic Gov. John Kitzhaber has not said whether he'll seek a fourth term. Eastern Oregon rancher Jon Justesen, a Republican, is the only other candidate to announce a campaign for governor.
