Help Support Jamie McLeod-Skinner

Jamie Supporters -- Jamie McLeod-Skinner's campaign is generating unprecedented levels of excitement in Oregon's 2nd Congressional District, and across our entire state.

That's why I wanted to share this note from Jamie's campaign director. Over the course of this campaign, Jamie has logged tens of thousands of miles traveling in her Jeep across the district, talking with voters and making the case for why they should vote for her in this year's critical elections.

And in these final days of her campaign, the support you can give to Jamie and her team could make the difference. Take a look: 

Great news! According to recent polling Jamie is within single digits of the Greg Walden, who has less than 50% support. After 20 years in office, we are making history together in the 2nd Congressional District! We need your support to finish strong.

Please give now to narrow the gap! We need to raise another $200,000 to ensure that Jamie’s TV ads can stay on the air. Her opponent has never faced competition this fierce and determined to win, as the poll and fundraising prove.

Oregon Public Radio Coverage of Oregon’s 2nd Congressional District Race

Oregon’s only Republican congressman has two decades' worth of staying power. Democrats haven’t bothered to put much muscle into challenging him — until now. 

For nearly 20 years Republican Rep. Greg Walden has locked up re-election in Oregon’s 2nd Congressional District. This time, however, Democrat Jamie McLeod-Skinner is betting on voters with an independent streak. Read Complete Story on OPB

Jamie for Oregon Opens Union County Office at 101 FIR in Downtown La Grande


It is very exciting to open the Jamie Campaign Office!  Today Lore and I are picking up some things to turn the empty room into an office.  Next we need VOLUNTEERS! This is the schedule that UC Team Jamie thinks will work well.  We really need to fill up this schedule ASAP (2 shifts per day-see below). 

Find a time and send message to Anna at: unioncountyvolsforjamie@gmail.com with cc: to me (cksw46@msn.com).

The Campaign office significantly raises the visibility of Jamie in La Grande.  We want it to be a hub of activity and need teams of two people to be in the room when it is open.  Volunteers will answer questions, provide SWAG, sign up volunteers and talk to people that put their head in the door and ask what's going on...? There will be brochures and other information to share as we share our enthusiasm about Jamie with La Grande.

We will have internet set up (in process), hot water for drinks and cookies, postcards for you to write and other campaign activities.
