Please note: The GOP debate on 3/19 has been cancelled. The candidates are instead focusing on campaigning in their own states.
The Oregon Republican Party has arranged for the March 19 Republican primary debate to take place in Portland, Oregon. This is a first for Oregon, being a traditionally blue state, and we acknowledge the great work on behalf of our Republican National Committeeman, Solomon Yue, and Committeewoman, Donna Cain, in making this happen.
Locally, our Republican Central Committee Chair, Bill Ertel, has arranged for the Taprock NW Grill to allow us to reserve the lower level for a gathering of Republicans to watch the debate. This is their prime dinner hour, so we encourage everybody to order dinner and drinks, and bring your friends!
After the debate, we’ll conduct a straw poll. It promises to be an interesting evening.
