More positive national exposure for Jason Atkinson
This may have already been pointed out, but I just found this on the blog of the Club for Growth. Dated March 6, it's titled, "A Rising Star for Oregon Republicans?"
Oregon’s gubernatorial race is turning out to be an interesting one to watch. State Sen. Jason Atkinson is surprising a lot of people with his appeal among party activists, and is doing better than you’d expect in the polls in a statewide match up.In the 2003-2004 election cycle, the Club for Growth raised $22 million for issue advocacy, candidates, and operations, and it has a track record of success. Just think what they could do for Atkinson in the general election?
The postings on an Oregon blog showed he turned a lot of heads this weekend at a debate among Republicans running for the post.
Atkinson is running in part on “working to repeal job-killing taxes” such as the capital gains and death taxes.
This is an important state for Republicans, and this race bears watching.
And if he wins, he’s got to be the first professional bicycle racer to be elected governor. Hey, if a bodybuilder can do it, why not a bike racer?
