Oregon Governor Announces Her Re-Election Campaign

Oregon Governor Announces Her Re-Election Campaign”

More recently, as Trump and Republicans in Congress have been trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act, Brown worked with her state legislature to pass a law that expands health care coverage to just about everyone in OR, regardless of income level, citizenship status OR gender identity. The latter was among Brown's priorities during the legislative session earlier this year.

"The Oregon we all love is a special place", Brown said in a statement Monday". "We need to protect the OR we love so much and ensure that everyone has the chance to live a good life here".

She made her announcement with some tweets and a video with a thinly veiled message that she plans to continue opposing President Donald Trump. Last week, Brown told reporters she was "appalled" by Attorney General Jeff Sessions' opposition to the Obama-era program that shielded immigrants brought to the country illegally as children from deportation.

Brown, a Democrat and former Senate majority leader representing Portland, was in her second term as Oregon's secretary of state when former Gov. John Kitzhaber resigned in February 2015.

If Brown wins both the Democratic primary and general election next year, it will be her first and last four-year term, at least in the near future. And they criticize her for supporting a $3 billion a year tax on sales by large corporations that OR voters rejected last year. Brown won the 2016 election, allowing her to finish out Kitzhaber's original term.

Brown will face competition from five Republicans so far who have filed to run in 2018.

Buehler, who has raised $1.2 million, has criticized Brown for failing to address major problems in the state, such as the low high school graduation rate, and tax and spending reform.

Rebecca Tweed, Buehler's campaign manager, issued a statement Monday raising another issue.
