ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Oregon 4th District Congressional candidate Art Robinson (R) was in Roseburg on Monday to campaign for the May primary race.
Robinson ran a spirited race against democrat Peter DeFazio in the last election, and is back to try it again.
Robinson says he made good progress in the last election, and he feels that's prepared him for an even better run this time. "The crowds are about 50% bigger and more enthusiastic," Robinson told KPIC News. "That's not just us, this pro-freedom movement, this pro-liberty movement to get government back to the size it should be and so on, is growing all across the country. It grows constantly and its growing in our state too. So, I'm seeing more enthusiasm and bigger audiences, but I don't think it's just me, I think it's the gradual growing of this side of the political spectrum."
Robinson was speaking at the Douglas County Library Headquarters building, and talked about the economic situation in the country and the 4th district.
He says he spent six months preparing for the race, and is now ready to get down to business and start campaigning.
