Oregon Gov. Kate Brown fights for political life as voters tire of 'resistance'
The Washington Times ^ | August 22,2018 | Valerie Richardson

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown positioned herself early on as a leader of the anti-Trump opposition, but the state’s never-ending panoply of protest activity has backfired on her re-election bid with voters suffering from resistance fatigue.

Ms. Brown, who was expected to coast to victory in deep-blue Oregon, has found herself deadlocked in the latest polls with state Rep. Knute Buehler, an affable orthopedic surgeon whose moderate brand of Republicanism is attracting crossover voters.

That includes Ben West, who supported Ms. Brown’s previous bid for office but was horrified by the mobs that shut down the Immigration and Custom Enforcement office in Portland for five weeks, leaving behind so much trash that the area was ultimately declared a biohazard.

What stuck with Mr. West was the sight of Occupy ICE protesters scaling the building, removing the U.S. flag, and waving the Antifa flag, a display he described as “appalling.”

Ladies & Gentlemen...tune in and watch the Democrat Party continue it’s own political self destruction. All I can say is, there are going to be tons of sad, crying Democrats come the evening of November 6, 2018, all them shouting out in despair...”What Happened?”

Trump & Company will win and hold both the House & Senate!!!

Downtown Portland is now very prosperous after two back-to-back real estate crashes.
The locals are probably tired of the nonsense.

Siding with criminals from Cohen to the guy who killed Mollie Tibbetts and against workers may not be a winning strategy after all.

Oregon getting a Republican Governor who will not back down to these Red Guard thugs would be so wonderful, just what they deserve. These thug kids never think beyond what they are tearing up at the moment and have no clue as to the righteous fury of the American public once it is raised.

Her opponent is a very soft Republican, but better than Kate.

Hell, she doesn’t have to worry. Democrats are professionals at finding votes after an election to make sure any close vote goes to their candidate and since Oregon is controlled by democrats, she has no worries.
