    Jim Huffman for your U.S. Senate

    Jim Huffman listens to Oregonians
    "The political class is completely out of touch with the people. Oregonians need jobs, but Ron Wyden and the Reid/Pelosi Congress think all solutions come from Washington, DC. It's time for career politicians to experience the unemployment line.

    This race isn't about Jim Huffman - or Ron Wyden
    "This election is about the people of Oregon, too many of whom are struggling. Wherever I go, people are underemployed or out of work, unable to afford health insurance, and worried that their kids won't be able to find jobs in Oregon. Meanwhile, Washington, DC insiders exploit the economic crisis to expand government, spend billions on wasteful earmarks and create an unprecedented national debt."

    Jim Huffman isn't a career politician
    "I've spent the last thirty-seven years studying, teaching and writing about the constitution. Too often we take for granted the freedoms our forefathers fought for and our constitution protects. Those freedoms are threatened by career politicians and their special interest deal making. As your U.S. Senator I will work to restore proper balance."

    Oregonians need real private sector jobs, not big government bailouts and spending
    "The Washington DC power elites said the bailouts and the stimulus package would save the economy. What they really sought to do was save themselves and their special interest supporters. Government needs to work for "We the People" again."
