Oregon’s Second Congressional District Democratic Candidates Band Together

Oregon’s Second Congressional District covers more than seventy thousand square miles. That’s two thirds of the state. It’s also the scene of the primary election battle to unseat incumbent Congressman Greg Walden. The Republican has held the seat for seven years. To win back the district, the Democrats are trying an unusual political approach. The candidates have banded together for a district-wide roadshow. Correspondent Carol Cizauskas caught up with the liberal underdogs on the last day of their tour, in Baker City, Oregon.

Butcher: “My stance on the second amendment is not going to gain me a single vote, but it will take the cotton out of the ears. It will give you an opportunity to talk to people who would not listen to you to begin with. Then you show them Greg Walden’s voting record. Then you show them why you are a better choice.”
Chuck Butcher is a Democratic candidate from Baker City, Oregon.
