Here’s how the pro-life movement fared in Oregon on Election Night!

What an election! I am so proud of all of our pro-life voters in Oregon. You all made your voices heard by handing BIG wins to Cliff Bentz in the Second Congressional District, Tim Knopp in Senate District 27, Boomer Wright in House District 9, Suzanne Weber in House District 32, and Danielle Bethell to the Marion County Commission, position 3, among so many others.

Boomer and Suzanne’s seats were both held by pro-abortion legislators so that increases our pro-life caucus in the Oregon House by TWO!

I’ve worked in politics for more than three decades and have never seen a year like this. We endorsed 84 candidates, many in extremely challenging races, with one in almost every legislative district in the state. We are proud of their dedication and perseverance. As of now, 39 are clear winners, with some races (notably Sen. Denyc Boles’s race in Salem) still too close to call.

We’re headed quickly towards a long legislative session in 2021 that is bound to be brutal. We’re so grateful to be headed back in, hand in hand, with so many dedicated advocates in the House and Senate (plus all of you faithful advocates).

Because everyone deserves an advocate.
