Oregon Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Blasts Democrat Opponent for Hypocritical Stance on Police

Objectivity 2.9 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.6

Oregon Republican gubernatorial candidate Christine Drazan critiqued her Democratic opponent Tina Kotek in a debate for Tonek’s double standard on law enforcement. “When people call 911, they need to feel safe and have the right response at the right time,” Kotek said.  She continued, “And we do need more officers…. I’ve always supported our state police.” Drazan answered, “Tina Kotek is the original defund-the-police candidate. She did not support police even when rioters were attacking a police station. It’s stunning to me that she would talk now like she supports law enforcement.”
