I’ve had a lot of requests for my ballot picks. In this note, I’ve covered the major races and ballot measures for Oregon and Washington.
Donald J Trump. There’s not room here to run through all the reasons for this clear choice, but I’ve talked about it plenty on the radio and will be doing so for the next week.
GOVERNORS (Oregon and Washington)
Oregon- Dr Bud Pierce.
Washington- Bill Bryant
Oregon-Mark Callahan should replace Ron Wyden, who currently lives in New York city and has not represented Oregon well.
Washington- Chris Vance is the only choice. Patty Murray has been worthless for a long time. That and her famous endorsement of Osama Bin Laden, on tape, 15 years ago for building day care centers in Afghanistan was the worst.
SECRETARY OF STATE
Oregon- Dennis Richardson
Washington- Kim Wyman
Washington- I would rather have Libertarian Joshua Trumbull than re-elect democrat Bob Ferguson, who believes in assault weapons bans
Oregon- Daniel Crowe
Superintendent of public instruction
No good choice here.
