GOP Congressional candidate Jimmy Crumpacker released an ad in solidarity with President Trump, in the middle of the Wuhan coronavirus epidemic facing the nation.
I'm a gun-packing, Trump-backing, send-them-packing conservative - Oregonians deserve a voice in D.C. who will stand tall for our values and not concede anything to the radical socialists.

I will always stand with President Trump to defend our values, continue growing our economy and fight for the forgotten people of Oregon’s 2nd District. pic.twitter.com/mWqJpi6opJ— Jimmy Crumpacker for Congress (@VoteCrumpacker) March 17, 2020
A seventh-generation Oregonian, Crumpacker is running in the Republican primary to replace current incumbent Greg Walden (R,OR-02), who announced his retirement. Crumpacker, like President Trump, is a political outsider and businessman. Since President Trump's upset victory in 2016, an increasing number of non-career politicians are seeking office; these candidates can relate to real Americans outside of Washington, D.C.
Today I'm announcing my campaign to serve in Congress for the good people of Oregon’s 2nd District. I’m a conservative & a businessman, not a politician. I'll stand with President Trump, protect our Oregon way of life, and grow the economy.

Walden won the seat comfortably in 2018, with 56 percent of the vote. FiveThirtyEight still categorizes the seat as a solid GOP hold; President Trump carried the second congressional district in 2016. The primary for Oregon’s second congressional district is set to take place on May 19.
