Senator Bates has filed his candidacy papers for re-election this last week.

He says he hope to continue to focus on the transformation of Oregon's health care system.

Bates says he will work on a new method of delivering health care to Medicaid patients while opening up a health care exchange - which is Oregon's response to the Federal Affordable Care Act.

So far, only Bates and Dave Dotterrer of Ashland have filed in the race.
