Oregon’s Republican leaders came up with their stances on issues for the 2012 election. The group hammered out their platform this last weekend in Bend. Greg Leo, spokesman for the Oregon Republican Party, says social issues aren't the focus. “One thirteenth of the platform deals with social issues. It's primarily jobs and economics issues that are going to drive this election. This upcoming 2012 election is getting people back to work, reducing taxes and reducing burdensome regulations that businesses face.” The delegates removed some language from the platform regarding civil unions, that some felt was offensive.
