A day after she won the nomination, Wehby went on the Lars Larson Show to answer tough questions on concerns she isn't stable enough to serve in the senate.
"Lars: Do you have a temper? Monica: I do not, I'm a very controlled person. I've never thrown anything at anybody in my whole life. I don't yell and scream. I'm a neurosurgeon. How would I do my job?"
In the final week of the primary campaign, it came out that Wehby's ex-hsuband while she was divoricng him, and her ex-boyfriend Andrew Miller when they were breaking up -- both called police complaining about harassment from Wehby.
She says the incident with Miller occured when she told him she wanted to run for the senate.
"It puts a lot of stress on a relationship . Lars, it's just what's happening now. You are thrown in the spotlight and it's the politics of personal destruction. Look what they're doing. And Jeff Merkley says such things like personal matter should stay private, but it's his staffers that are digging this stuff up."
Wehby wants to concentrate on the issues -- not the candidates personal lives.
"I don't think people want their personal relationships scrutinized by everyone. These things are difficult. People understand you are heart broken and sometimes you say and do things you don't mean. I have to say on the police report, the most distrubing thing about it was when Andrew described me as medium build (laugh)."
Dr. Wehby is quite petite -- about 5'2" and 110 pounds.
She says she has good relationships today with both her ex-husband and ex-boyfriend.
