"Conjuring the image of America’s first great rabble-rouser, Thomas Paine, Republican congressional candidate Art Robinson urged a group of GOP loyalists Thursday night to rise up and vote “the professional politicians” out of Washington," reports Bennett Hall in the Corvallis Gazette Times on August 10, 2012.
Art Robinson was featured in the Washington times, as this year's model candidate for uniting GOP regulars, Tea Party activists, and Ron Paul supporters in his Oregon 4th Congressional District. The article continues to say Art may have provided the GOP a road map to win the White House fight in Nov.
The election contest for U.S. House in the 4th District is much closer than anyone expected a few months ago. The Oregonian and Congressman Peter DeFazio say it’s because of money. More likely, it’s because of the extraordinary campaign Art Robinson has waged.
Noted Astronauts Scott Carpenter (the 2nd American to orbit Earth) and Harrison Schmitt (the last man to set foot on the Moon) have endorsed Art Robinson for Congress. In 2010 they both travelled to the State of Oregon to tour District 4 with Art.
