Betsy Johnson’s war of words week

By Oregon Campaign Watch

In a New York Times artcile Oregon Governor candidate (Non-affiliated party) Betsy Johnson was featured on her television ad that speaks about the decline of Portland by saying;

“Portland’s homelessness crisis is animating Johnson’s campaign. One of her TV ads shows her driving around the city’s encampments. “No more tent cities,” she says. When I spoke with her, Johnson didn’t mince words: “You can see the deterioration of the beautiful City of Roses, now the city of roaches,” she said.”

Tina Kotek’s supporters took this as a personal attack on Portlanders.

Portland TV News ran stories on it.

Betsy Johnson replied with this statement.
