The Oregonian

  
* The Oregonian: Oregon GOP should pick Mitt Romney

"Most candidates on the Oregon presidential ballot are put there by the secretary of state, who draws up a list of serious candidates three months before the primary. This year, that gives Oregon Republican voters a choice among former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum from Pennsylvania, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia and U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas.

"Voters in other states have already focused the choice on Romney. To choose the candidate most likely to challenge President Obama's re-election, most capable of serving effectively as president and most likely to strengthen the Republican Party, Oregon Republican voters should agree...

"Any of Romney's competitors would have difficulty leading a ticket and energizing a party in Oregon, underlining a major argument why Romney particularly appeal to local Republicans. In a state without a Republican in any statewide office, Romney might help build a more inclusive state Republican party."



* Fmr. Sen Gordon Smith

“Former senator Gordon Smith (R., Ore.) has endorsed Mitt Romney for president. In a press release, Smith says:

It has been nearly three years since President Obama took office and it is clear that his policies have not worked for Oregon or the country. Mitt Romney has a proven job creation record as governor and in the private sector. It is time we put someone in the White House who understands how the economy works and how this country’s economy can get moving again.

“In 2008, Smith lost his reelection bid to Jeff Merkley. Currently, Smith is president and the CEO of National Association of Broadcasters.”


* Rep. Greg Walden

“Today, I am announcing my endorsement and full support for Governor Mitt Romney in his campaign for president. As the senior elected Republican in Oregon, I would not normally wade into a primary, but these are not normal times. I personally know several of the other candidates and have great respect for their willingness to run and for the integrity and honesty they bring to the debate. But the country under President Obama has become more divided and the people are worse off. Governor Romney is best qualified to run, win and govern effectively.”

“As an Oregonian, I want a president I can partner with to help restore jobs in our timbered communities, enhance our farm economy and stop the over-the-top proposed federal rules that will ship our jobs overseas,” said Walden. “I want a president who is serious about fixing the tax code in a way that will grow our economy. And I want a president who will work with Congress to get America's fiscal house in order, not one that's just looking for a political fight. I look forward to working closely with Governor Romney and his team on natural resource policy and telecommunications policy, both of which I'm deeply involved with in Congress. We have the opportunity to make this America's greatest century. And I look forward to doing my part to elect a president who can lead our country's renewal and growth.”


* Chris Dudley - NBA Star and former candidate for Gov.

"Chris Dudley, the 2010 Republican nominee for Governor in Oregon, former Portland Trail Blazer and 16-year NBA veteran" endorsed Mitt Romney, stating:

“I am proud to endorse Mitt Romney for president because he has the leadership, business and governing experience to lead our nation back to greatness."
