The Portland Doctor hoping to unseat US Senator Jeff Merkley has announced her campaign war chest for the fourth quarter. Today Dr. Monica Wehby says that they have raised a little more than half a million dollars.
Her campaign points out that it's an impressive number considering she announced her candidacy on October 29th... leaving her only the months of November and December to fund-raise.
Wehby was also recently called, "The GOP's best hope in the race" by TownHall magazine. MSNBC put her on their "Women to Watch in 2014" list. And the National Journal has placed Oregon on its "Most Vulnerable" U.S. Senate seats list naming wehbe (web-ee) as part of the reasoning.
Meantime- Incumbent Jeff Merkley announced a 3 million dollar war chest recently.
The five Republican candidates in the primary race are in Bend tonight, on Tuesday for a special forum. It's at the Shilo. Doors open at 6:15p for the 7 o'clock event.
