The State Senate race between Chris Telfer and Tim Knopp is getting more statewide attention; this time from of pro-life and pro-family groups. Teresa Harke with 'The Oregon Family Council' says they are backing Tim Knopp because of he is pro-life and supports "traditional" marriage. She says Incumbent Senator Chris Telfer wouldn't answer the Family Council's questions on traditional marriage, abortion and other social issues. Harke also believes that these social issues may determine the race: “In the Republican Primary when you've got two candidates who are qualified, who are decent on jobs and the economy, people will look to second tier issues. Right now people care most about the jobs and economy, but they are going to look at, okay, I think you're strong on economic issues, but where do you stand up compared tothe platform. So if you've got two people who are great, then I'm going to go with this person."  The Oregon Family Council has about 40,000 household members and 2000 church members. They recently sent out a mass mailing to potential voters explaining why they are backing Tim Knopp.
