Republican gubernatorial nominee Christine Drazan plans to pay a visit to Philomath on Saturday, July 9, for a meet-and-greet event hosted by Rep. Anna Scharf.

The event is scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m. at Vinwood Taphouse (1736 Main St.).

Drazan came out of the May primary election with her party’s nomination after receiving the most votes in a field of 19 candidates. Drazan is a former House Republican leader.

In the November general election, she will face Democrat Tina Kotek and independent candidate Betsy Johnson for governor.
