In avoiding an Oregon Republican political nightmare on November 3rd, understand three key realities:
- We don’t have a voter-apathy problem. We have a lack-of-candidate problem, the result of horrid State ORP leadership. Our voters don’t need to be “energized!” (What are we 704,000 Oregon Republicans, drained batteries?) Because of Donald Trump, and this impending Oregon political debacle, we Republicans are already energized.
- Kate Brown is not the ultimate problem. It’s the massive Oregon progressiver swamp she inhabits that is the problem. We don’t need another recall-Kate-Brown effort under the ORP theory that our voters must be energized (see #1 above).
- We’ll never get Republican control of our Oregon government without Republican candidates in our primary elections.
