Every election thousands of voters in Oregon don't turn in their ballots. Good candidates have lost close races that they could easily have won with a few more votes that were not turned in. We can't let this happen to Art Robinson.
As a special last minute favor to all of us, please check with every one of your family members and friends who are likely to vote for Art Robinson. Don't assume anything, ask ALL OF THEM if they turned in their ballots.
If they haven't, keep checking until they do! We only have until 8:00 PM tomorrow (Tuesday).
If their ballot is turned in, pass on the message to please check with each of their friends. If all our supporters don't forget to vote it could easily be the difference between winning and losing.
A new, very expensive campaign has been launched on commercial billboards along Oregon highways and roads by Art’s opponent Peter DeFazio. These billboards say nothing about DeFazio or his policies. Actually, the very fact that DeFazio put them up is being concealed. The DeFazio billboards feature Art Robinson’s picture, name, and text falsely suggesting that Art will work to close the public schools, stop social security payments, and stop federal student aid to college students. Art is pictured advertising these things. Many motorists who read these signs know that these are not Art’s policies, but polls show that 33% of motorists who read the signs believe that they were put up by Art, the candidate pictured on the sign, to promote his actual policies. Predictably, the signs make them less likely to vote for Art.
"Art Robinson is a fearless scientist, author, educator, father and small business person. He stands up for the conservative values and principles that made our country great. Art brings new ideas and a fresh approach to tackling the problems we face in Oregon and across America. He's committed to helping get Oregonians back to work in the woods and in our mills and to restoring the economic vitality of our rural communities. He will shake up Washington and get America working again."
Beginning October 1, thousands of Robinson highway signs, yard signs, and car door magnets across the district are appearing with campaign messages. We have turned issues that the voters need to consider into 34 different large, four-color signs that are being put in place beside the Robinson For Congress signs. These are made possible by the hard work of volunteers, because we print and build them ourselves.
Art for Congress volunteers are installing signs (like the ones above and below) across District 4. The signs have one of 35 different messages that will quickly educate voter about the important differences between Art and DeFazio.
