WashCoDems: FOCUS FOUR 2020
By Carl Fisher, PCP, HDL – HD35
In order for Oregon to continue to lead as a beacon of progressive values, it is important to hold that supermajority. What became clear and in 2019 was that even with a supermajority, the Republicans can walk out when they don’t like something. When they walk out … we cannot conduct business. The more legislative seats held by Democrats, the less of a weapon the walkout can be against our commitment to Progressive values.
Three of these legislative seats we’re only won in 2018, so they have a lot of attention from Republicans. They are looking to gain those seats back.
District 24 is considered a bit of an uphill battle, but, because of the walkouts that all Oregonians witnessed from Republicans, we do have a shot at the seat. Read more about each of these candidates to learn about the history of the district, and why we need to get strongly behind these candidates up through election day.
