Salem, OR – Today, The Oregon Republican Party has released the following statement:

Today, the Oregon Republican Party announced that it has fallen only 8% short of the 280,000 signatures needed by the 90th day of signature gathering, October 14th, to put the Governor on the ballot to be recalled by a vote of the people.

“We gathered approximately 258,000 signatures as of today, which is insufficient to recall Kate Brown at this time,” said Oregon GOP Chairman Bill Currier, the Chief Petitioner. “However, it is a record number of signatures for any petition in Oregon’s history and, with nearly 35% of the signatures coming from non-Republicans, it is more powerful evidence that a huge number of Oregonians want a change in Salem, starting with the Governor.”
