THE DALLES, OR -- Republican members of Congress are running into argumentative crowds at town halls, Wednesday's meeting in The Dalles with Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR) was no different. About a thousand people showed up to talk with Oregon's only Republican member of Congress, asking about immigration, Obamacare adn issues surrounding President Trump.
Walden says he expected the crowd. The town hall at the same middle school Walden attended as a child lasted more than an hour longer than planned.
He'll be in Central Oregon, Thursday. A town hall at Crook County High School begins at 8:30 a.m. His Bend meeting begins at 5 p.m. at Mountain View High School. Critics have complained that Walden hasn't held a town hall in Bend since 2013.
