Here in my native state of Oregon, I have watched, over the course of my lifetime, as Progressives took over this once vital state and made it into an economic and geographic wasteland. Not to mention the grievous moral and spiritual decay. With each Lefty elected we became bluer and bluer, and our balance sheet become pure red. But now there is a tiny glimmer of hope as one rock-solid conservative, my friend, Mark Callahan, has won the republican U.S. Senatorial primary. Read on. TJ

The phenomenally beautiful state of Oregon (which is scattered with pockets of blue Liberalism) is probably the last place in America, one would expect a true Tea Party Conservative Candidate to win a primary, but it has happened.
Mark Callahan (the true conservative in the race) decided to try it again after his failed attempt several years ago and wouldn’t you know it, he won. Callahan bested 3 other seasoned political pro’s in the March 17th primary with a win over the 2nd place finisher by some 7 points in this hotly contested race.

Callahan is currently preaching almost the exact same mantra that Donald Trump is running with on his campaign trail, although Mark does fancy himself to be more of in the mold of Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Utah Senator Mike Lee. He has very strong beliefs that we should secure our borders, rebuild our military, retool our trade deals with foreign nations to better benefit America, scrap Obamacare (which he often refers to as WydenCare — named after the incumbent Democrat Ron Wyden — and he is fiercely pro-life, along with being a proponent of the Fair Tax.

Callahan touts the Scouts motto of Leadership, Character, and Integrity as his redeeming qualities (which he learned from the Scouts) as his guiding principles he has carried throughout his lifetime.
