SALEM, Ore. –Gov. Kitzhaber says he’ll be ready to announce his decision on a second term by the end of this month. 

Nike just gave him some incentive  with a $10,000 contribution to Kitzhaber’s campaign fund.

Last December, Kitzhaber called a special session at Nike’s request to pass legislation that promised the state wouldn’t change the way it calculates  income taxes for the firm.

In exchange, Nike promised to proceed with a major job expansion in Oregon.

Kitzhaber has already served two terms from 1995-2003 before returning to office in 2011.
