The Oregon Cattlemen’s Association and the Oregon Farm Bureau encourage Oregonians to vote for gubernatorial candidate, Knute Buehler in the governor’s election.

Knute has demonstrated he understands and cares about the challenges facing rural Oregonians and he’ll serve our needs to help us overcome those challenges. It’s essential for natural resource stakeholders to unify behind our candidate.

Your vote does make a difference. The mindset that “only Portland votes count,” is not true. In the 2010 election, the number of rural voters who voted, but left the governor slot blank, was larger than the difference between John Kitzhaber and Chris Dudley. Your vote matters.

This race may be closer than ever before. Not voting, or writing in a name, is a vote against the values of rural Oregonians and it’s a vote for more of the same in Salem. The stakes are too high to risk.

A quote from Ronald Reagan:

“Die-hard conservatives thought that if I couldn’t get everything I asked for, I should jump off the cliff with the flag flying — go down in flames. No, if I can get 70 or 80 percent of what it is I’m trying to get. ... I’ll take that and then continue to try to get the rest in the future.”

The Oregon Cattlemen’s Association and the Oregon Farm Bureau support Knute Buehler for Governor and encourage you to vote in this crucial election.
