Oregon, My Oregon

From Paul Knighton at Bearing Arms Soros-Funded DA Gets Crushed in Portland Election

Portland, Oregon may well be one of the most progressive cities in the nation. Many of us remember the nightly riots of 2020 that continued there well beyond the point where they'd burned out (pun fully intended) in most other cities. 

Amid the turmoil, Soros-backed District Attorney Mike Schmidt took office. He had all the right politics for the city and at a time when people were furious, that was probably the only way a candidate was going to become DA.

Four years later, Schmidt sought to get a second term. The people of Portland decided he really needed to seek employment elsewhere.
On Tuesday night, voters in Multnomah County, Oregon fired one-term George Soros-backed incumbent District Attorney Mike Schmidt.

Fox 12 called the race at approximately 9:30 pm local time with Schmidt’s opponent Nathan Vasquez leading 58 percent to 42 percent. In a non-partisan primary, if a candidate garners over 50 percent of the vote, they are declared the winner of the election but don’t take office until January 2025.
. . .
And this is not good news for President Biden and the rest of the Democratic Party. I know this is a local election, but this is also Portland. It's one of the most extreme progressive cities in the country, and they just rejected an extremely progressive district attorney. If they've lost Portland to any degree, how much have they lost the rest of the nation?

 Signs of intelligent life in Portland? We'll see.

  1. But is the newly elected candidate a sane individual or just slightly to the right of the loon who was thrown out? Exactly where does this new individual stand on the scale of sanity?
