"I think that Jackie Winters has great star appeal and would would shine in the House. I hope her fundraising is going well."
Apparently, it is:
Salem Jackie Winters got a great birthday present today as she celebrated her 67th birthday. Her campaign reported she has raised more money than her primary opponent for the second straight quarter. The Winters campaign reported today they raised $115,198 for the period of January 1 to March 31. The campaign ended the period with cash-on-hand of $49,238. The Winters campaign has raised nearly $222,323 since beginning last November.
This really shows that our campaign has a strong, broad base of support. We now have 1100 contributors and they have made the campaign what it is today, Jackie said today.
The figure that shows the strength of our grassroots effort is that we have raised nearly twice as much in individual contributions under $200, Jackie stated today. The campaign reported raising $41,788 from under $200 contributors in the five months she has been campaigning. Jim Zupancics campaign has only raised $23,395 from individuals under $200 even though he has been campaigning for a whole year as of this week.
The Winters campaign challenged Jim Zupancic to release the number of people who have contributed to his campaign. We believe our campaign will show nearly twice as many contributors as the Zupancic Campaign, even though we have only been running for less than half the amount of time, Jackie Winters concluded.

(Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice, moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.)
The truth about Jackie Winters is that in the last Senate Session she voted for the LARGEST TAX INCREASE in Oregon's History. She wouldn't even refer this tax increase out to the voters! Oregonians had just rejected a ballot measure, BM28, that would have increased our taxes here and then Sen. Winters votes AGAIN in the Senate for the LARGEST increase ever. She is not the kind of Republican I want representing me in Congress. She CANNOT be trusted to lower any of the taxes on hard working families.
Jim Zupancic on the other hand is a business man who knows the most important thing he can do in Congress is lower the tax burden to get this economy moving and create more jobs in this country.
I am a 5th Congressional District voter who is not letting the wool be pulled over my eyes. Jackie Winters in no friend to working families trying to survive in a state where the recession has hit the hardest. We have had the lowest unemplyment in the state for awhile now and she tried to raise our taxes during that time.
Join me and vote for Jim Zupancic, a businessman, leader, and friend to the taxpayer.
