Attention voters in the Evergreen State: U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden doesn't represent you.
That's the word coming from the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which sent out an anti-Wyden statement earlier this week.
Thanks, NRSC, but since he's a senator from Oregon, no shit.
We think they must have meant something else:
"Despite his claims that he is ‘like Oregon,’" the statement reads, "it’s clear from Ron Wyden’s record that he has simply lost touch with his constituents during his 14 years in Washington. Senator Wyden is a career politician who has championed a reckless economic agenda that has driven our national debt to a staggering $13 trillion and failed to create jobs as the Evergreen State’s unemployment has skyrocketed [bold ours] to 10.6 percent. Like the rest of his out-of-touch rhetoric, Senator Wyden’s new ad simply doesn’t match reality."
Gee, I guess I won't vote for Wyden. 'Cause I can't.
(Thanks Eugene Weekly!)
