BEND, OR -- Republican U.S. Senate candidate and Bend businessman Sam Carpenter announced Wednesday he is endorsing Donald Trump for President. He issued a statement explaining why he thinks Trump can turn things around:
"Whether its immigration and the refusal to close the borders, or the bad trade deals rubber stamped and fast-tracked through Congress, Wyden and Obama have been working against Oregon workers. And, it's high time we had a President and a Senator who will fight for jobs for Oregonians rather than for jobs for the Chinese or for illegal immigrants."
Carpenter says Americans are tired of career politicians and are ready for an outsider to fix the problems in Washington, D.C.
