Ron Wyden Does Not Represent Oregon
66% of Ron Wyden’s campaign contribution come from outside of Oregon*.
The top special interests represented by Wyden are:
If Ron Wyden’s primary political backers are in New York, Washington D.C., and Los Angeles, then does he truly represent Oregonians?
No, he does not!
Ron Wyden cannot truly represent Oregonians if the majority of his financial support comes from wealthy donors outside of our State.
In 1994 Oregon Voters passed Ballot Measure 6, which banned the use of out-of-State donations by political candidates. Two Federal Judges decided that our law was unconstitutional and refused to uphold it.
We have already told Ron Wyden that taking out-of-State money is against our laws, but he isn’t listening.
If your money isn’t good enough for Ron Wyden, then he doesn’t deserve your vote either.
