By Oregon Campaign Watch,
Below is the announcement from Lars Larson on his endorsements in the Oregon Primary:
Since the field is so wide and varied with more than a dozen registered in the primary, Lars decided to add a runner-up, and second runner-up to his endorsement list, to show that he does appreciate the values and experience these candidates all bring to the table.
Lars Pick: Bridget Barton
Runner Up: Dr. Bud Pierce
Second Runner Up: Marc Thielman
Senate, Seat Currently Held By Ron Wyden
Lars Pick: Jo Rae Perkins
Jo Rae has shown herself to be a solid conservative, with the right mindset geared toward leading the state back toward a focus on morality and family values, and smart economic growth instead of just pushing one subsidized green-policy after another like Wyden has done for more than the past 2 dozen years.
Congressional District 1, Seat Currently Held By Suzanne Bonamici
Lars Pick: TBD
Lars hasn’t spoke with any of the current candidates running to replace Bonamici, so he’s not able to give you his endorsement for an honest, and trustworthy candidate yet. As soon as we can connect with some of the candidates, this will be updated.
Congressional District 2, Seat Currently Held By Cliff Bentz
Lars Pick: Cliff Bentz
While not everyone is perfect, Cliff has done well in his first term as a replacement for long-time Congressman Greg Walden and had some big shoes to fill. Fortunately Cliff seems to be filling those shoes out well for the most part.
Congressional District 3, Seat Currently Held By Earl Blumenauer
Lars Pick: TBD
Lars hasn’t spoke with any of the current candidates running to replace Blumenauer, so he’s not able to give you his endorsement for an honest, and trustworthy candidate yet. As soon as we can connect with some of the candidates, this will be updated.
Congressional District 4, Seat Currently Held By Peter DeFazio
Lars Pick: Alek Skarlatos
Alek is a rock-solid conservative and an American hero. He’s pledged to bring timber jobs back with a vengeance, and believes in small government, and big freedoms which should entice any conservative looking for a good choice to vote for.
Congressional District 5, Seat Currently Held By Kurt Schrader
Lars Pick: Lori Chavez-DeRemer
While Lori may lean a bit too much on the fact that she’s a minority and a woman, the values and stance on major issues like the second amendment, right to life, and education are definitely there which makes her a stand out candidate that Lars supports.
Congressional District 6, Seat Currently Held By No One, (New Seat)
Lars Pick: Amy Ryan Courser
Amy is all you can ask for when looking for a good, conservative GOP candidate. She knows her stuff, and she brings not only the right stance on the issues, but a good helping of common sense to the table. Lars backs Amy wholeheartedly for this race.
