I want to first commend Alek Skarlatos for scaring the crap out of Peter Defazio, who has not had that done to him in a long time. Please do not get out of politics, run again next election, getting name recognition in Oregon in a big deal. In Oregon more and more people are seeing Defazio in the pocket for New York and California Democrats, they turn and vote for someone else. Let that someone else be you, we need fresh young conservative minds in Oregon that will not be beholding to big tech or Chinese interest as much as our two U.S. Senators and our Governor are.
I am very proud of Jo Rae Perkins, while I did not originally think she was the right fit for Oregon, she grew on me, and she was much maligned by the Merkley camp for being a Qanon follower. Everytime I would support her online in forums, that was the claim the leftists would make in attacks on her. She performed far better than I expected, though she did not make Merkley sweat as much as I would have liked, she did pull some decent numbers. Oregon just has not had enough of Merkley’s fear and hate mongering, they will one day.
We have two more years of Pete Defazio not doing anything for Oregon except trying to make it California, and we have Merkley spouting nonsense for six more years about how the sky is falling (literally.) I suggest we do what Oregonians do best, and strap up our boots and get to work until it is time for us to again cast our ballot into a blue stream only to see them eaten by a liberalism and hate for America that we call Portland.
