We 've reached 10,000 doors

I've learned what matters to voters in thousands of personal conversations over the past two years: a quality education for our kids, housing that we can afford, and efficient transportation to get us to and from work. Every door we knock on gets me closer to being your voice in Salem, where we can stand up for what matter most.

We are knocking on doors and making phone calls every day, reaching out to over 1,000 voters each week. Our goal is to knock on 10,000 more doors between September 1st and November 1st.

And now this

We are receiving calls that a mailer hit about Jim Thompson being a wolf in sheep's clothing. To our knowledge, it is going out to Democrats and non-republicans only. The organization involved is a far right Political PAC that was designed to attack Thompson on his moderate views.
