Tonight, Kate Brown Won the “Debate for Oregon’s Future” By Standing Up for Oregon Values While Republican Knute Buehler Continued to Run from His Record
PORTLAND — While Governor Kate Brown was clear about her plan to strengthen schools and improve access to health care during tonight’s debate on KOIN 6 TV, Oregonians saw Republican Knute Buehler try, but fail to brand himself as a different kind of Republican and repeatedly reveal that he doesn’t have any solutions to Oregon’s most pressing problems.
Knute Buehler tried to distance himself from his record on health care, gun violence prevention, the environment, and education, but in the end, it was clear that Buehler would say pretty much anything to get elected. Find out more at www.liesfromknute.com.
"Tonight, Oregonians witnessed Republican Knute Buehler try, but fail to distract voters from his right-wing legislative record and prove that he just doesn’t have solutions to Oregon’s most pressing problems," said Democratic Party of Oregon Chair Jeanne Atkins. "When it comes to Knute Buehler, it’s not what he says, it’s what he’s done. Buehler voted to take away health insurance from children, seniors, and the disabled — and he wants to cut teachers’ pay and benefits. Kate Brown’s fight for Oregon’s priorities have made her the clear choice in this election, and tonight’s debate confirmed that 100 percent."
