Mayor Ted Wheeler: Portland was ready for protests

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler is taking a bit of a victory lap after Saturday’s rallies between right- and left-wing groups mostly fizzled. “We said that if you came here, we’d be ready for you if you wanted to commit acts of violence. And we were,” the mayor said during a conversation with KGW’s Lindsay Nadrich.
