The man who recently closed a 13 point deficit in four weeks to become front runner for Governor in the Republican primary reminds voters that his opponent did not support President Donald J. Trump.
“I’ll give power back to the forgotten men and women” said Sam Carpenter, author, businessman and Candidate for Governor of Oregon. “Our Government is not serving the people, it’s high time to bring back common sense to the management of our Natural Resources.”
As a hat tip to Trump’s agenda, Carpenter’s campaign is MakeOregonGreatAgain.com
His Republican opponent however, Knute Buehler, is not a fan of Trump’s and posted so on Facebook:
“The latest revelations about Donald Trump are disgusting and deeply offensive. There is no excuse for his language and behavior. Trump is a disgrace to the Republican Party and to our democracy. Last year, I condemned Donald Trump because I felt he was a sexist, narcissist and intolerant of people of color and ethnic minorities. The past year he has proven himself all that and more. It’s time for national Republican leaders to take action to replace Donald Trump as the nominee of the Republican Party. In the meantime, I will continue to lead with an open mind, a tolerant heart and a thoughtful voice. And I’ll put principle ahead of political Party,” Buehler wrote.
According to the latest state polling:
“Oregon Republican voters share our conservative values,” Carpenter said. “They want a nominee who is pro-life, pro free-enterprise, tough on immigration, supports the Second Amendment, and who stands with our Republican President, Donald Trump.”
Voters may also be showing displeasure with Buehler, who has recently come under fire for skipping debates and candidate forums with Republican groups.
President Trump, who is constantly at odds with Democrats and more establishment Republicans, has an aggressive agenda of more jobs and less taxes.
Trump has frequently turned to his own Social Media to communicate his need for the voters sending him more support.
Trump enjoys high approval
Can you believe that despite 93% bad stories from the Fake News Media (should be getting good stories), today we had just about our highest Poll Numbers, including those on Election Day? The American public is wise to the phony an dishonest press. Make America Great Again!

Carpenter feels confident that his support of the President’s agenda will play in his favor in the Republican Primary.
Carpenter has placed an emphasis on getting out to meet people, over fundraising, however Buehler does have a larger war chest.
“From the beginning of the campaign, back in September, our strategy was to ramp up to a modest and growing lead by early April. We did not want to peak too early. And our aim from the start has been to spend less than $100,000 of our total $250,000 primary race budget in the first six months of the campaign – and then aggressively pump the remaining $150,000 into the last two months, when voters will be paying serious attention to individual candidates. We began that assertive effort March 19th,” Carpenter’s manager, David Gulliver, said.
“There is another part of our strategy that has also worked out as-planned. Instead of focusing on fund-raising over these past six months, Sam has spent his time talking with voters – individually and in groups – sharing a consistent message of principled, pragmatic conservatism,” he said.
Buehler is not going to work with Trump
According to his Facebook Page, Buehler, Carpenter’s rival wrote:
“It’s no secret that while President Trump ran as a Republican, he was never this Republican’s choice for President (I wrote-in Ohio Governor John Kasich). Shortly after Mr. Trump announced his candidacy, and on several subsequent occasions during last year’s campaign, I publicly expressed my opposition to his candidacy. My primary concern was his character, temperament, fitness and his lack of experience to perform the duties of President and Commander in Chief.
After the election, like many Americans, I hoped our new President would surround himself with good people, take their counsel and grow into the office. I had low expectations but I wanted our new President to succeed. Unfortunately, his actions during the past six months have made me more concerned, not less. As a candidate, only an election is at stake. As a President, the future of our nation is at stake.”
Sanctuary Cities is a big issue:
It's not just cities. Oregon is a sanctuary STATE! Oregonians need to support @OregonIR amd pass #IP22 to end sanctuary for illegal aliens – and elect a governor who will work WITH @POTUS instead of "resisting." #MOGA #MAGA https://t.co/xMMj2dRqKO

New Gallup Poll Shows Immigration Tops Most Important Problem List
When Americans were asked what they feel is the most important problem facing the nation, immigration topped the list for just the second time in Gallup’s history. The top issue each month since January of 2017 has been the government, but immigration has just replaced its position according to a new Gallup poll.
When asked the same question in June, immigration ranked at 14% when Gallup asked Americans what’s the “most important problem” the nation faces. It jumped from 14% to 22% from June to July 2018.
Each month, Gallup asks the same question and the answer of immigration has always averaged 5% over the 17 years Gallup has included it in their polls. So why the sudden jump from 14% to 22%?
The past several weeks social media and news outlets alike have focused on the issue of separating families at the border with President Trump’s stance on immigration and his modified policy that would keep families detained together (if detainment must occur) continuing to be a hot button issue.
Just last month, TIME ran the cover story, “A Reckoning After Trump’s Border Separation Policy: What Kind of Country Are We,” with the cover photo that was proven to be fake news. The cover showed a 2-year-old little girl crying while President Trump towers above her looking on as she wails. The cover read simply “Welcome to America.” The claim made by Time was that the little girl had been separated from her family at the border, but Yanela, daughter to Sandra Sanchez had never been separated from her mother at all. Sanchez and her daughter were arrested by Border Patrol agents under the zero tolerance policy that criminally charges anyone attempting to cross the border illegally, but at no point were they separated.
Every week immigration has remained in the news cycle, and continues to be an issue that is important to Americans. The Washington Examiner reported on Monday that The National Guard’s deployment to the southwest border in mid-April has led to 10,805 “deportable alien arrests” of people who entered into the United States from Mexico illegally. The National Guard has also intercepted more than 3,300 others who were turned back at the border before crossing into the U.S., and have seized 11,686 pounds of marijuana.
In April of 2006, immigration reached 19% when Congress was working on passing a comprehensive immigration bill. During this time period, immigration protests popped up all across America and saturated the news cycle. The last spike, according to Gallup of immigration as the top problem was in 2014 when the news focused its attention on a large number of immigrants who were attempting to enter the U.S. from Central America.
The issue of immigration is important to Americans, but for starkly different reasons. Republicans are more concerned about potential crime, impacts on the nation’s economy, and jobs being taken away from native-born families. Democrats, in contrast, support a path to citizenship for the undocumented, but more over, they know that they need all the help they can get at the polls, with Trump’s base stronger than ever heading into the Midterms.
The Gallup poll is based on telephone interviews conducted July 1-11 with a random sample of 1,033 adults in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. It has a margin of error of 4 percentage points and a 95 percent confidence level.
