Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, who continues to raise money for her campaign fund even though she can't run for reelection, is now tapping donors from the business community.
The governor also received contributions from the state's major utilities - PacifiCorp, Portland General Electric, NW Natural and CenturyLink. They all have a big interest in state regulatory decisions and often contribute to sitting governors. PacifiCorp, PGE and Century Link each gave $10,000 while NW Natural gave $5,000.
