GOP gubernatorial candidate Knute Buehler is surging in the Oregon governor’s race, according to a new poll out this weekend from Gravis Marketing.
The poll finds that Buehler has tied incumbent Democrat Kate Brown in the race for governor in deep blue Oregon, with both candidates receiving 45% of the vote. Buehler is leading among Independent voters by double-digits, while voters now hold a net negative view of Brown.
Kate Brown has struggled in the past year after signing a billion dollar small business tax hike, failing to improve schools and betraying her promises of transparency. She has also faced multiple scandals, including reports of hundreds of millions of misspent healthcare dollars and allegations of toxic working conditions in a state agency.
