Supporters & Friends,
The voters have made their decision. While I wish it had been different I absolutely accept it. It was a long primary campaign, but it was an exemplary campaign. There were seven highly qualified candidates who did not waste time going after each other with negative ads or comments but instead focused on the issues and their own qualifications and solutions. It was what all campaigns should aspire to be.
I have been extremely honored and humbled by the support so many people gave me during my campaign and to all of you I first say, “Thank you.” I then say that while I was not selected to be the person who will have the honor of “Repealing & Replacing” Greg Walden, that remains my #1 goal. To that end I would encourage you all to not only give Jamie McLeod-Skinner your financial support but also your help in getting the word out about her candidacy, so we can make sure that 2018 is the year that Congressional District 2 turns blue!
