Kate Brown Using Dirty Tricks To Hide Her Negative Campaign

Wilsonville, OR – With billions in tax hikes and her failure to fix education, homelessness, the PERS crisis, etc., Kate Brown has no record to run on. Now Brown is reportedly resorting to dirty tricks to run her negative campaign, falsely attacking Knute Buehler in a desperate attempt to hold on to power as her polling numbers flop.

PLACEHOLDER IMAGEA new investigative report from Oregon Public Broadcasting reveals that Kate Brown’s campaign is the “largest donor” to Defend Oregon’s Values, the “candidate-controlled committee” attacking Knute Buehler with false advertisements that mischaracterize his record. “Defend Oregon’s Values reported receiving $100,000 from Brown’s campaign,” reports OPB.

“This is just another unethical action from Kate Brown, who has made undermining transparency a hallmark of her time in office,” stated Oregon Republican Party Chairman Bill Currier. “From holding PERS discussions in ‘complete secrecy’ to flouting public records laws and even trying to block some very legitimate FOIA requests, Kate Brown always tries to hide from public scrutiny.”

Recent polling has exposed Kate Brown as a vulnerable candidate in a tightening race and, neutral political forecasting experts are now lining up behind the notion that Oregon’s Governor race may be an “upset” in the making by the GOP.

“Kate Brown’s efforts to conceal her negative campaign are just the latest of these dirty tricks,” added Currier. “Clearly, the Governor is increasingly desperate to salvage her floundering re-election campaign, but Oregonians are on to her tricks, wise to her failures, and ready to replace her this November with a sincere, effective leader in Knute Buehler.”

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.
