Gov. John Kitzhaber came by WW's offices last week to talk about his past three-plus years and his prospects for re-election in November.

You can see many of the questions we put to him—and read his answers—in the Hotseat we published in today's paper.

Here are two video excerpts from that interview where he answered questions about the $248 million cost of developing the Cover Oregon insurance exchange.

In the first, we ask Kitzhaber about the prospects for tax reform, and whether it's been made more difficult by the Cover Oregon controversy. In the second clip, Kitzhaber says he disagrees that money spent on the Cover Oregon site was a waste of money.
