BREAKING: Christine Drazan Refused to Condemn Election Deniers and Conspiracy Theorists in Tonight’s Debate – Proving She Will Not Stand Up to Extremism

[Portland, OR] – During tonight’s KGW debate, Republican Christine Drazan stunningly failed to condemn the growing faction of Republicans who are following Donald Trump’s lead and still refuse to accept the results of the 2020 elections.

Even when pushed by the debate’s moderators, Drazan refused to answer their question about whether election deniers should be disqualified from holding office. 

Instead of standing up to extremism tonight, Drazan is doubling down on her support for U.S. Senate candidate Jo Rae Perkins, who was present at the January 6th insurrection, called it the “American Revolution,” and actively denies the results of the 2020 election.

This is not the first time that Drazan has failed to condemn extremism. As HuffPost reported: “Christine Drazan is campaigning with a far-right militia leader and taking money from a guy who bankrolled one of the main organizers of the Jan. 6 rally.”

“The threats to our democracy are very real – and they are here in Oregon, including in the Governor’s race,” said Katie Wertheimer, communications director. “Christine Drazan’s failure to condemn election deniers in tonight’s debate shows she’s willing to stand with the most extreme members of her party over Oregonians – she is clearly too extreme for Oregon.”
