BEND, OR -- A legally blind Bend woman, perhaps best known for racing in the Iditarod as a teen, has announced plans to run against Congressman Greg Walden in 2018.

 

In a Facebook post to supporters, Rachael Scdoris-Salerno says she was prompted to run after "watching the outrageous press conference about the House of Representatives passing their so-called 'American Health Care Act.'"  She goes on to say, "Our Representative, Greg Walden was prominent among the Congressmen who were celebrating this act. In fact, he is even a co-author of the bill himself."  


Scdoris-Salerno says she never considered running for office before, but she’s grown increasingly frustrated with what’s happening in Washington, and she’s worried about how President Trump’s decisions and actions will impact children like her two-year-old son. 

 

She and her husband, Nick Salerno, own the Oregon Trail of Dreams sled dog tour business on Mt. Bachelor.
