Merkley was the son of Betty Lou and Darrell Philip Merkley and was born in Myrtle Creek, Oregon. His paternal grandmother was born in the Australian town of Calliope. Before moving to Portland with his family, he attended first grade in Roseburg, Oregon. He graduated from David Douglas High School, earned a bachelor’s degree in international relations from Stanford University in 1979, and a master’s degree in public affairs from Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School in 1982. Merkley was chosen as a Presidential Management Fellow after completing his master’s degree, and he worked on the security of American military technology at the Office of the Secretary of Defense.
Merkley was elected to the Oregon House of Representatives as a Democrat from the 16th district in east Portland in 1998. He took over for Frank Shields, who left the House to serve in the Oregon State Senate due to term limits. The Oregonian predicted that Merkley was the most likely of several Democrats to “accomplish something positive in the Legislature” in its endorsement. Following the 2003 session, he was elected Democratic leader, and after the House Democrats won a statewide majority in the 2006 Oregon elections, they unanimously elected him Speaker of the House in the 74th Oregon Legislative Assembly.
During Merkley’s tenure as Speaker, the Oregon House passed numerous major pieces of legislation: it established a state “rainy day fund,” increased Oregon public school funding by 14%, and state university funding by 18%; banned junk food in schools, expanded the Oregon commercial indoor smoking ban, revised the Oregon Bottle Bill, and prohibited discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender.
As a senator, Merkley has a progressive track record. He was the first Democratic senator to announce that he would vote against Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke’s confirmation, citing Bernanke’s failure to “recognize or remedy the factors that reform bill. Together with Michigan Senator Carl Levin, he successfully added an amendment to the Dodd–Frank Wall Street reform bill, known as the Volcker Rule, that prohibited high-risk trading within commercial banking and lending institutions. Merkley is also a champion.
