Wilsonville, OR – Kate Brown can’t defend her failed record on taxes, education, and healthcare, so she’s enlisted her big government union allies to distract and falsely attack Knute Buehler.
Oregon Public Broadcasting reports that a new attack ad from a union-funded group called “Defend Oregon’s Values” is attacking Knute Buehler in a TV ad:
“It turns out that the group is coordinating with the campaign of Gov. Kate Brown. The committee’s online filing with the state Elections Division says the group is a ‘candidate-controlled committee’ working on behalf of Brown.”
“The attack ad blatantly mischaracterizes Dr. Buehler’s position on the issues,” stated Oregon GOP spokesman Kevin Hoar. “Buehler has been a strong proponent of improving healthcare access and lowering costs, and yesterday came out with an ambitious health care plan to fix the waste and mismanagement in Oregon’s health care system, which has been rampant on Kate Brown’s watch. Also, Buehler opposed Kate Brown’s massive health care tax hike.”
“Kate Brown has had a rough couple of weeks as she evades accountability for one case of gross mismanagement and poor leadership after another,” added Hoar. “Governor Brown’s TV ad is just another weak attempt by her and her insider allies to distract from her failed record.”
“Kate Brown is never going to improve, but Oregon can – by replacing her with Knute Buehler this November.”
