If we are to have any chance of stopping the anti-gun politicians in 2017, we need to know who they are all around the state, and we need to mobilize every single pro-gun voter in the state to support pro-gun candidates. If we do that, we may just send a clear message to Salem and around the state that our rights are not something to be voted away by politicians that feel they have the right to do so. This thread is going to be developed as a "master list" of candidates across the state of Oregon for various political offices, from the Governor on down. We'll use this thread for one thing only - to list the known candidates, likely by county (yet to be determined) and simply mark them down as one of 3 notes: Pro-gun, Anti-gun and unknown. Many groups put out "voter's guides" each election cycle, and that is essentially what we're doing here - but we are focusing on one, and only one issue - gun rights. I'll need everyone's help to do this. I'll do my best to keep this thread up to date, based on the information I receive. I won't have time to research the entire state, so I'll really need your help too. We'll need lists of names, party affiliation if applicable, names of offices running for and, if known, their stance on guns. I'm reserving the first 10 posts for lists of candidates. After that, please post any updated information for your area. I'm guessing the most important for this list are governor, secretary of state, state representative, state senators and county commissioners. That will be a lot of information right there, but if space and time allows, we may be able to include a little more. This is NOT a discussion thread. If you want to discuss candidates and their stances on guns, please open another thread. Only list known candidates, their party, the office and their stance on guns if known. Any other information will not be applicable here and may result in the post being removed. I'll try to start adding info to this in the near future. Until then, feel free to add candidate info in this thread. But please, reserve commentary for another thread. Thanks!! @Joe Link, I'm not sure if this is the right forum, please move it if necessary. Also, would it be possible to make this a sticky, so it's always at the top of the list??
