The woman who will be taking on incumbent Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley was in town to meet with media and constitutents.

 

"People in Oregon, I think people know we need to turn things around.  We're going in the wrong direction.  Deschutes County has a much higher unemployment rate than the national average, it's 8 percent, Crook County's is 10 percent and it's all because of the policies of Senator Merkley and President Obama leading us in the wrong direction."

 

Wehby says too much regulation and uncertainty are hurting our economy and contributing to our sluggish growth.

 

"Senator Merkley has voted with his party and Harry Reid 95 percent of the time and that's now how we are in Oregon.  We don't agree with anyone 95 percent of the time.  We're not a blue state, we're a purple state, a red state with a couple of blue islands.  We can't be voting lockstep with a party, that's not representing our state.  I want to be somebody who represents the entire state."

 

She believes she has the qualifications to bring people together and reduce some of the gridlock.

 

"I think I have the talent and ability to be a problem solver.  I did that at the Oregon Medical Associaton, which is really a microcosm of the state.  We're all of different political parties.  We all want our country to be strong, our children to be susccessful.  We have the same goals, but different ways of getting there."

 

Wehby says her team is still negotiating on upcoing debates with Senator Merkley.
