BEND, OR -- The Democratic Party of Oregon launched a new website, last week, in the effort to unseat Congressman Greg Walden (R-OR). 2nd Congressional District Committee Co-Chair Laurie Baden says RepealWalden.com is focused on reaching a wider donor and voter pool, "Donations made there will be put into a fund that will then be given to the winner of our Democratic primary that will be May 15." Seven candidates are running for the Democratic nomination.
Baden believes many of Walden's constituents want to donate toward seeing him unseated, "This has become a race of national importance, and I will say, it is a new day in District Two. For any naysayers who think this is unprecedented, I'll tell them, 'This is winnable this time, and we're going to do it'." She was part of a similar effort five years ago. This time around, she tells KBND News she's encouraged by the recent rise in political activity.
