VOTERS JUMP PARTY TO SUPPORT SIZEMORE FOR GOVERNOR
By Roger Fredinburg
The question remains; Can Bill Sizemore become Oregon's next Governor?
The challenge for the Sizemore campaign isn't the usual Right/Left paradigm.
The voter registration numbers in Oregon stack up against any Republican candidate in a Statewide race here.
Statistically, Republicans have a near zero chance of winning Statewide. There are over 870,000 registered Democrats to the Republican party's total of just under 660,000 registered voters. See State Stats.
Based on that, looking at the statistics causes this writer to consider the possibilities.
NewsWithViews.com has received numerous e-mails from independents and unaffiliated voters who are telling us that they are switching from independent or unaffiliated to Republican for the primary to help Bill Sizemore win the nomination and get on the ballot in the general election. They can switch back right after the primary election without penalty.
Oregon election law allows party affiliates to vote for their party's candidate only. Democrats must vote for democrats in the primary, Republicans for republicans etc. Left out of that process are Oregon's "unaffiliated" voters.
There are more than 413,000 "unaffiliated" registered voters in Oregon and about 50,000 independents.
With republicans needing to cover a potential 200,000 vote deficit in the general election any candidate carrying the Republican banner will have their work cut out for them.
Even Democrat's are switching to Republican status to vote for Sizemore. They are hopeful he can be victorious in the primary because they see him as a non-threat in the general election, thus, they think, guaranteeing a Democratic victory next November.
In this growing anti-big-government climate we see developing around numerous contentious issues, Jobs, health care, economic recovery, personal liberties etc. There is a slight chance a more populist small government conservative like Bill Sizemore might actually have a shot. He certainly has the name familiarity.
While traditionally, Sizemore's negatives are high, our mail-bag shows a softening and a strong re-evaluation of Bill Sizemore's agenda. His endless battle against big government, government waste and his strong pro-business policies are rapidly becoming more palatable to the masses.
If enough unaffiliated and independent voters, and yes, some gamers in the democrat ranks switch to republican for the primaries and vote Sizemore onto the big stage, he can win the republican primary.
It might also be possible that he could simultaneously be nominated by the Constitution party and further assure a real showdown with the Secretary of State.
One thing's for certain... Oregon's gubernatorial race is going to be anything but boring.
If you are an unaffiliated or independent voter, even a democrat who is switching to republican status for the primary so you can vote for Bill Sizemore, please let us know.
Also, remember that Bill can't win without money, and remember, the Public and Teacher employee unions have allied with the criminally insane Oregon courts to deny Sizemore the ability to raise funds for his campaign.
