Democrats Starting To Panic As Republican Christine Drazan Rises In Oregon Governor Race

The race for governor in Oregon was recently moved from leans Democrat to toss up and that has Democrats getting very nervous.

They were probably not expecting this race to be competitive.

Now they are throwing big money at the contest.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Democrats Pour Over $1M Into Oregon Governor’s Race As Blue State Becomes Toss-Up

The Democratic Governors Association poured over a million dollars into the Oregon governor’s race last week, its largest contribution yet in the state.

The Association on Thursday contributed $1.25 million to Democratic candidate Tina Kotek, the Willamette Week reported, bringing the group’s total contributions to more than $3 million for Kotek this year. The news comes as the Cook Political Report on Friday shifted its Oregon gubernatorial race prediction from “Leans Democrat” to “Toss-Up.”

Kotek faces an uphill battle as the left-wing candidate in Oregon, where voters are concerned about rising violent crime. Last year, Portland had the most homicides in its history. When she served as state House speaker, Kotek sided with rioters who damaged local businesses and flung rocks, bottles, and fireworks at police during Portland’s summer 2020 protests.

Kotek’s campaign did not respond to a request for comment.

Kotek is seeking to distance herself from her opponents, independent candidate Betsy Johnson and Republican Christine Drazan, as they are locked in a three-way race. The Democratic Governors Association has drawn attention to both Johnson’s and Drazan’s “A” rating from the NRA, as well as Johnson’s courting of GOP megadonors.

If Christine Drazan pulls this off, she will be the first Republican governor of Oregon since the 1980s.

Oregon clearly needs a change in leadership.
