Former New York Times reporter and columnist Nicholas Kristof announced Wednesday he is running for governor of Oregon , the state where he grew up on a sheep and cherry farm. Kristof , who left the newspaper earlier this month, wrote frequently about the economic and social problems of the people he grew up with in Oregon as the region's manufacturing and timber economy collapsed.

Former New York Times journalist Nicholas Kristof announced his candidacy Wednesday for Oregon governor , saying the state needs a political newbie to solve problems like homelessness and rural despair. UP NEXT. NOW PLAYING: Politics. Ex-NY Times columnist runs for Oregon governor .

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat, is term-limited. The post will likely stay in Democratic hands, and Kristof is far from a frontrunner in the field. He enters a primary to replace Brown that also includes state House Speaker Tina Kotek, state Treasurer Tobias Read and several other candidates. State Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum is also said to be considering a run.

The Republican field includes Bud Pierce, a doctor who was the party’s nominee in a 2016 special election. Brown defeated Pierce by about 7 points that year.

Elsewhere on the gubernatorial map: New Mexico Republican Mark Ronchetti, a TV weatherman who unsuccessfully ran for the state’s then-open Senate seat last year, also kicked off his bid for his state’s governorship on Wednesday.

Ronchetti launched with a video sharply critical of Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, who has already announced she will seek another term. He joins a crowded field, but he likely has the largest statewide profile because of his former job and previous campaign.

He lost to now-Democratic Sen. Ben Ray Luján in 2020 by about six points. President Joe Biden carried the state by about 10 points in 2020, and Lujan Grisham defeated then-Rep. Steve Pearce by 14 points in 2018 to flip the governorship.
