Lori Chavez-DeRemer Reaffirms Commitment to Run in 5th Congressional District
Ready to take on the socialist agenda of high crime and inflation

On the heels of the passage of the new Oregon congressional maps, Oregon Republican Congressional Candidate, Lori Chavez-DeRemer, released the following statement:

"Last night, Oregon became the first state in the country to enact new congressional maps that will determine our political representation in Washington D.C. over the next decade. When announced two months ago that I would be running in the5s congressional district, there was uncertainty where the district lines would be drawn but that changed yesterday when the redistricting process was finalized.

"Barring any legal outcomes from the courts, I reaffirm my commitment to running in Oregon's 5 congressional district that stretches from the suburbs of Happy Valley, down to rural Clackamas and Marion Counties, and finally to parts of Central Oregon.

"In just ten weeks, we have built a strong grassroots movement and campaign organization ready to take on the Biden/Pelosi socialist agenda of high crime and inflation. I look forward to traveling up and down this new 5 congressional district over the next year and representing these communities as Oregon's next Congresswoman.

The new 5th Congressional District -- which some are calling "gerrymandered" -- stretches from the heart of Portland all the way to Bend. In an earlier statement, Chavez-DeRemer said, “Speaker Kotek has politicized the redistricting process, reneging on her agreement with Leader Drazan for a balanced and fair approach to better serve Oregon. The proposed map is blatantly gerrymandered and denies representation of our diverse communities. The Speaker’s actions are plainly undemocratic.”
