We’ve put up with career D.C. politicians making backroom deals and exchanging favors with special interests at the expense of everyday working families back home for too long.  Oregon deserves to be represented by people who will stand up for our great state and start solving problems rather than throwing political mud.

  • Putting Oregon First

    We’ve put up with career politicians jumping through Washington’s hoops for too long. Oregon deserves to be represented by people who will stand up for our great state and get Washington working for us again.

  • Bringing Jobs Back Home

    Oregonians know how to work hard, and they want to work hard. We’re pioneers, and proud of it. I’ll help turn Oregon back into a powerhouse state by working to create and protect more jobs across business, industry, tourism and education.

  • An Education Unique to Every Child

    I believe every Oregonian family should be able to educate their children the way that’s best for them, and every Oregonian should be able to choose the health care that works for them, not what Washington tells them they should have.

  • Cleaning Up The Washington Swamp

    Washington is rife with dysfunction, and it’s making life harder and harder for regular Oregonians. It’s time to fix things. I’ll work across the aisle to cut the deficit, balance the budget, and get government working for the people again.

Some of you might know that the line above is from the Prayer of St Francis, and others may never have heard of it before, but the prayer was very much on my mind a few nights ago. And it isn’t often you think of prayers during Sunday Night Football (especially when your team isn’t playing), but as I was switching between the Packers-Saints and ‘Madam Secretary’ (good show!), I kept seeing a cardboard cutout of Art Robinson pop up on my screen. It seems that Peter DeFazio isn’t interested in making a positive case to vote for him, but just wants to demonize Art to get enough people to vote without knowing the facts. First it made me angry, but then it made me sad. This is a Congressman, a “public servant”, someone who has represented us for longer than I've been alive, descending to the gutter to try and scare people into ignoring his record and voting by ‘default’ for him. I was brought up to think of America as the land of the possible, a can-do country where we come together to fight for a vision of an ever more perfect union. It shouldn't be somewhere where people play divide and conquer, scaring others into submitting to further their own interests.

A Scientist Speaks Out

 

I'm always touched when people come forward to stand beside me when I'm attacked. I've got thick skin, and although I didn't know it would be this vicious when I took this on, it is what I agreed to when I put my name forward. But the support I continuously receive makes it a lot easier to bear. When people smile and give me a thumbs-up on the street, it helps. When they write encouraging words, it lifts my spirits - and yes, a check does count as encouraging words!
