Rick Dancer, former candidate for 2008 Secretary of State has formally endorsed Knute’s campaign! Rick almost achieved victory in 2008 coming within 5 percentage points of beating his Democratic opponent.
Speaking before a crowd of 75 at Murphy Plywood in Eugene, Rick said: “In 2008, you all supported my candidacy and I can’t thank you enough. Now, we need to support Knute. Knute Buehler is a smart, talented, and capable person. He’ll work hard to fix state government for you and for all Oregonians. He’s the best person for the job. That’s why I’m endorsing him.”
Dancer’s support will be crucial in Lane County, a must win for the Buehler campaign. “Rick’s endorsement is necessary and very welcome,” Knute said when questioned about the endorsement. “He is well-respected not only in Lane County but throughout Oregon.”
“Dancer’s work in the media, his battle with cancer, and his race in 2008 endeared him to the hearts of Oregonians,” Knute continued, “his support will be invaluable and I’m very appreciative of everything he’s done for us so far.”
