A pediatric neurosurgeon has formally joined the race for the Republican nomination to challenge Democratic U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley. Monica Wehby of Portland told The Oregonian (http://is.gd/rJ5voF ) she wants to reverse what she sees as a decline in opportunity for young people following the Great Recession. In 2004, the doctor was the chief petitioner of Ballot Measure 35, which would have limited non-economic damages in medical lawsuits. Among those Wehby will compete against in the May primary are state Rep. Jason Conger and Bend businessman Sam Carpenter.
