Our country is at a turning point. This November, the American people have a clear choice on the ballot: turn back the clock on Americans’ fundamental rights, or build on the progress we’ve made and protect these rights for generations to come.
I am honored to have been chosen as the Democratic nominee to run for U.S. Senate in the state of Oregon. I have spent my time in Congress fighting tirelessly to level the playing field for working families and hold special interests and corporations accountable – but our work isn’t done yet.
Right-wing dark money is already pouring into our state, and as long as Republicans think there’s a chance to put Mitch McConnell back in power, every Senate seat is in play.
Our movement is fighting to make sure the people of Oregon continue to embrace our progressive, community-focused vision for our state and for our country’s future.
But things can change quickly, especially when SuperPACs are lurking in the weeds just waiting to drop tens of millions of dollars to push the “lie of the week.”
Republicans have made it clear as day that if they take back control of our country they’ll do everything in their power to impose their dangerous, outdated, and extremist policies. The right to privacy, the right to an abortion, the right to marry who you love, the right to use contraception—the right to live your life free of government intrusion is on-the-line in this election.
There’s so much at stake, but I have hope. Hope that our grassroots movement will expand our Democratic majority in Congress so we can get to back work on priorities that matter to all working families and for our country.
Senator Ron Wyden
