It’s looking good for Republicans. More and more elections look to be favoring the GOP even in historically blue states. The states that might flip might surprise you.
Republicans are going to be happy when they hear this news.
According to The Daily Wire, the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics moved its Crystal Ball rating for the Oregon gubernatorial race from “Leans Democratic” to “Toss-Up,” suggesting a Republican victory.
Arizona, Nevada, Wisconsin, Kansas, and most recently, Oregon, have toss-up governorships.

As Drazan Communications Director John Burke told The Daily Wire, “Oregon’s gubernatorial race is the best pickup opportunity for Republicans in the country this year because Christine Drazan is the best candidate.” Christine is well positioned to win and make history this November, as evidenced by this rating change and the multiple polls showing her leading both of her Democrat opponents..”
In Oregon, Republicans have not won a gubernatorial election since 1982, according to the Center.
Tina Kotek, the Democratic candidate, served as Speaker of the House, Christine Drazan, the Republican candidate, served as Minority Leader, and Betsy Johnson, the unaffiliated candidate, previously served as a Democrat. Nike co-founder Phil Knight supports Johnson, who leans more conservative than most Democrats.
There could be a chance for a new perspective to come in and gain support since Democratic Governor Kate Brown is leaving. According to the group, “there is just enough uncertainty here to make the race look like a toss-up for now.”
Drazan, a Republican, was recently endorsed by a prominent Democrat in the state who ran for the Democratic nomination in the gubernatorial race earlier this year.
George Carrillo is a veteran of the Marine Corps and a former deputy sheriff. Carrillo said he endorses Drazan because “she’s the real deal.”
It’s looking good for conservatives but who is surprised? The left is completely out of control these days and people have finally had enough. Maybe they’ll get back in touch with everyday Americans once they realize their seats are on the chopping block
