Oregon GOP Chair Congratulates Gubernatorial Nominee Knute Buehler, Unifies to Defeat Kate Brown
Wilsonville, OR – The Oregon Republican Party released the following statement on the results of last night’s Gubernatorial Primary and the GOP’s focus on defeating incumbent Governor Kate Brown in the fall.
“Congratulations to our 2018 Republican Nominee for Governor, Knute Buehler,” stated Oregon Republican Chairman Bill Currier. “Thank you to all the candidates who competed in the GOP primary and for their words of support for our new nominee as we unite for victory in November.”
The Statesman Journal coverage reported reaction from several of the candidates for the GOP nomination, in addition to Rep. Buehler:
(Bend Businessman Sam Carpenter) said Tuesday that despite their disagreements, he will support Buehler. “The people made their choice and it wasn't me. I’m fine with that. We need to move ahead as a party and I support the nominee.”
(Former Navy Pilot Greg) Wooldridge also said in a statement that he supports Buehler as the nominee and will continue to work for the betterment of Oregon. "Gov. Kate Brown's failed leadership has run the ship of Oregon aground. I am going to be working on advocacy, mobilization and fundraising to help manifest change."
“It speaks of the desire for change in the state of Oregon, that the status quo is no longer acceptable,” (Knute) Buehler said.
“Oregonians deserve answers to these troubling allegations, and Kate Brown is already setting it up so that the results of this ‘investigation’ won’t be truly known by the public,” stated Oregon Republican Chairman Bill Currier.
“Now we look forward as Oregon’s Republicans and as Oregonians of every political affiliation come together to replace Oregon’s negligent, bungling, tax-hiking, anti-small business, radical George Soros-funded Governor Kate Brown, who blows off Oregon’s big problems like the PERS Crisis and considers herself above scrutiny for the misconduct and management failures, and outright abuses on her watch,” added Chair Currier.
“Oregon has had enough of the incompetent, disastrous tenure of grandstanding political hack Kate Brown. This fall, Oregonians have a golden opportunity to elect a Governor in Knute Buehler who will put the Brown train wreck behind us and welcome in a much brighter future for all of our state’s citizens.”
The Oregon Republican Party is the state’s arm of the Republican National Committee. Its Chairman and officers are dedicated to preserving and advancing Republican principles within the state of Oregon and to improving the lives and livelihoods of Oregon’s working families through economic freedom and equal protection under the law.
