|What an incredible evening for Oregon Democrats!
When we began this campaign, we said we had three big jobs to do — and I’m proud to say we accomplished each one of them.
We re-elected Governor Kate Brown, thanks to an amazing statewide outreach effort.
We re-elected our great Oregon Democratic Congressional Delegation and made a big noise in Oregon’s Second Congressional District, a noise that is still reverberating. I can’t say enough about Jamie McLeod-Skinner and her team — the campaign that they ran truly exemplified the spirit and heart of Oregonians in the district, and she earned the best result for an Oregon Democrat in CD-2 in at least 20 years.
And last but not least, we defended and expanded our Oregon Democratic majorities in both houses of the legislature in Salem.
Over the last two years I’ve had the privilege to travel across Oregon meeting with Democrats in all 36 of our counties. And one of the things I’ve said to them is that we want to send a message with this election.
We do not want to make ourselves great at the expense of anyone else. We want to have health care for all and public education for our children. We want humane immigration policies, strong unions, retirement plans for our seniors, and for women to have control over our own bodies.
Last night, Oregonians resoundingly said that we will not allow our state to cut reproductive health care, that we would not return to the days when racial profiling was legal, and that we will not hamstring our state and local governments just to protect corporations and the well off from paying their share of taxes.
This was a great night filled with great results, and it wouldn’t have been possible without your support. For that, we cannot thank you enough.
Now, as we look ahead toward the work to be done in 2019 and beyond to defend and uphold our Oregon Democratic values, I hope you’ll keep standing with us.
