BEND, OR -- The Republican candidate running in the 2nd Congressional District to succeed Greg Walden was in Bend last week. Former State Senator Cliff Bentz says his campaign just got back on the road again. He says voters ask him about everything from Black Lives Matter to housing and water issues as well as COVID-19 and the economy. He says getting kids back in the classroom is critical because parents need to work and many can’t do that if the kids are not in school. Bentz says it’s also critical to get people back to work because we don’t have trillions and trillions of dollars to spend while we search for a vaccine for COVID-19 or some other solution.
