Knopp Hopes for Senate Gains
“Every major issue, from homelessness to the cost of living, should be laid at the feet of Democrats”

After last night's primary election, Senate Republican Leader Tim Knopp (R-Bend) is excited to move towards the general election with 15 Republican candidates that he hopes will help win a majority in the Oregon Senate.

“Oregonians are fed up with Democrats’ reckless tax and spend policies that driven up the cost of living and inflation,” Knopp said. “They are tired of out-of-control crime that is making their neighborhoods more dangerous. Oregonians deserve better than the last 10 years of far-left extreme policies that have put Oregon on the wrong track. They desperately want balance.”

Every major issue, from homelessness to the cost of living, should be laid at the feet of Democrats. They have controlled the Legislature, Governor’s office, and state agencies which collectively created havoc and heartache for Oregonians and small businesses across the state.

“Our Republican candidates will challenge the ideas and policies of Democrats in November by casting a new vision for Oregon. We plan on being competitive everywhere and winning a majority in the Senate,” Knopp continued.

With redistricting this past fall, there are 16 seats up for election in the Oregon Senate this year. Senate Republicans fielded 15 candidates in seats from Portland to Medford in 2022.

“We are looking forward to a vigorous debate over the summer and the fall on where the direction of Oregon is going. We believe the vast majority of Oregonians will see it is time for new leadership and balance in Salem,” Knopp concluded.
