"According to Planned Parenthood of Oregon, Republican governor candidate Knute Buehler told anti-abortion supporters he would ban 80 percent of abortions statewide, according to new audio released by Lane County Republican Senate candidate Scott Rohter."

Pressure is also mounting for Buehler to finally speak out against flawed U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

On Thursday, Governor Kate Brown continued her advocacy on behalf of Oregonian women by speaking out against Judge Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination. Meanwhile, Buehler has failed to say anything about the allegations against Kavanaugh or the threat his nomination poses to women across the country.

From Willamette WeekWho is Paying For the Attack Ads on Gov. Kate Brown?

"Many Salem insiders believe timber companies, which reliably support GOP causes and oppose Brown's environmental agenda, are key Priority donors. There's no proof of that, however. Trade associations, including homebuilders, truckers and hospitality providers, have made small contributions ($5,000 to $15,000) through their political action committees. PACs must disclose their activity in state filings, so those contributions are visible while contributions corporations and individuals make directly are not."
