A familiar field.

Byline: The Register-Guard

Three of them were turned away. A fourth got a rough welcome.

But that hasn't stopped some of the same folks who ran for governor in 2002 from running again in the upcoming Democratic and Republican primary elections.

Gov. Ted Kulongoski came out on top among the last election's three Democrats to win both that party's nomination and the general election.

Four years later, Kulongoski once again faces two other candidates for his party's nomination. Jim Hill, a former state treasurer, is running again. Joining Hill and Kulongoski is Lane County Commissioner Peter Sorenson.

On the Republican side, the 2002 nominee, Kevin Mannix, once again faces lawyer and former Portland school board Chairman Ron Saxton. They're competing with state Sen. Jason Atkinson for the nomination this time around. Several lesser-known gubernatorial aspirants are on Republican ballots.
