(Medford, OR) Today, former Congressman Bob Smith endorsed Cliff Bentz for Congress by releasing the attached letter to supporters. In his letter, Smith highlighted Cliff’s conservative record in the Oregon legislature both as a State Senator and Representative.
“After years of working for rural Oregonians in Salem, Cliff is offering to continue to put his expertise in water and timber and land to work for rural Oregonians in Washington D.C. I can assure you that in Washington, Cliff will do just what he has done in Oregon: get the job done right!” Smith said in the letter.
“Congressman Smith served Oregon with great distinction, and I’m honored to have his support,” said Cliff Bentz. “We’ve been fortunate to have great leaders like Congressman Smith and Congressman Walden who have championed conservative values, lower taxes and less regulation coming from Washington D.C. I plan to carry on that legacy of conservative service for rural Oregon.”
Smith concluded, “I am happy today to endorse Cliff Bentz as the successor to me, and to my good friend Congressman Greg Walden, as the next Congressman from Oregon’s Second Congressional District.”
