Democrat Supermajority in State House Votes to Throw Away Oregon’s Presidential Vote

Oregon GOP Condemns the “Outrageous Betrayal” of the Voters of Our State

Salem, OR –  Today, the Oregon Republican Party released the following statement reacting to the passage of Senate Bill 870 (deceptively promoted as the “National Popular Vote”) by the Democrat supermajority in the Oregon State House:

“Today, the power-drunk Democrat legislators in the House told the voters of Oregon that their votes for President are worthless and that our state’s electoral votes will be decided by larger states,” said Oregon Republican Party Communications Director Kevin Hoar.  “This is an outrageous betrayal of the citizens of smaller states like Oregon, and will discourage candidates from seeking their support.”

“By ramming through Senate Bill 870 Oregon’s elite ruling party is saying that the voters of their own state should have less of a voice in deciding who is elected President.  This is what the Democrat Party of Oregon has become in 2019, and it is pathetic.”
