With less than a week to go before ballots are mailed to Oregon voters, President Biden visited Oregon and mobilized more than 125 grassroots activists to make phone calls asking voters to support Tina Kotek for Oregon Governor. Activists made more than 10,000 calls while President Biden inspired them with remarks mentioning the immense progress that Democrats have been able to achieve during his term, including efforts to lower the price of prescription drugs and cap the cost of insulin.

Democratic Party of Oregon Chair, KC Hanson said “President Biden understands just how much is at stake this November: defending reproductive rights, protecting our Democracy, standing up for working families and so much more. This is the most important election in Oregon in decades – the future of Oregon is at stake. It’s all hands on deck to elect Democrats up and down the ballot, from Tina Kotek and Ron Wyden to Christina Stephenson and our congressional and legislative candidates. We’re honored that President Biden is fighting alongside us to win big this November.”
