Chris Dudley Wants to Govern

The former NBAer is considering running for the highest political office in the state of Oregon: “Chris Dudley, the former  Portland Trail Blazers center known for his charitable activities, says he is thinking about joining the Republican primary race for governor. Dudley acknowledged in a brief interview Sunday that he has been approached about running and is giving the idea consideration. ‘It’s possible,’ he said after appearing at Wordstock, the Portland book fair. ‘I’d just like to leave it at that for now.”‘

    The odds of a Republican getting elected governor of Oregon are slightly worse than Dudley’s three-point field goal percentage.

    Weird he’s a Republican. I’d have thought his charity work would have been based around building homeless shelters outta all them bricks he threw up in the nineties.
