“While the President is in Oregon for his short visit, I hope realizes that this is his America in Action,” says Barton. “The leftists and their progressive ideological policies have nearly destroyed our beautiful state. As Governor I will stop this leftist assault on Oregon and if we can save Oregon–we can save America, too.”
