MAKING CHANGE IN OREGON:

THE CHANGE WE NEED IN WASHINGTON D.C.:

As the son of a mill worker in rural Oregon, and first in my family to go to college, I will create opportunity for every American.

The people of Oregon are ready to defeat Gordon Smith and I am ready to win.

That's why I'm endorsed by Governor Kulongoski; Governor Barbara Roberts; Schools Superintendent Susan Castillo; 30 State Representatives; 12 State Senators; 15 mayors; American Federation of Teachers-Oregon; Oregon Nurses Association; Sierra Club; AFL-CIO; Service Employees International Union; AFSCME; UFCW; ILWU; and more than 100 community leaders across Oregon.
