State of Oregon secondary Archives: on Principles & Values


Gordon Harold Smith: Works often with Sen. Wyden (D-OR) & Sen. Obama (D-IL)

Smith made frequent reference to his ability to work both sides of the political aisle. He often cited his ability to work with Sen. Ron Wyden, his Democratic counterpart representing Oregon. He said he also has taken on Bush on several issues over the years and has worked with Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic nominee for president.

But Merkley said he has been endorsed by Wyden. “Sen. Wyden needs a partner in Jeff Merkley,” he said. Merkley said Smith has voted with Bush 90% of the time.
