November 14, 2021 (Sunday): Democratic candidate Yuri Testikov volunteers with Food Not Bombs Salem at Bush's Pasture Park, distributing campaign materials similar to the newspaper ads run in Corvallis to passers-by. Another ad is due to run in the Statesman Journal later this week. He greets minor police attention at the park with a raised middle finger and jeers. Some of the other volunteers are annoyed that he seems to be egging on the unwanted presence, but ultimately no police action is taken; some of the others, on the contrary, praise him for making his displeasure known. After the men in uniform dissipate, Testikov gives a short speech to passers-by on the park green:

"It is another of capitalism's daily unconscionable horrors that we must tolerate the same cops who take delight in brutalizing the poor and minority communities of this nation attempting to shut down a rare display of selflessness and aid to the disadvantaged. It is a dangerous myth that capitalism merely leaves alone those who fail by its merits; it also does all that it can to destroy them for daring to live outside of its standards. I am running for Congress to represent the new Sixth District because we should no longer have to bear living in a world where these abuses are accepted as facts of life. As we speak, I am writing a bill to implement nationwide police abolition that I will introduce on my first day in Washington if elected."

These words are met by a mixture of applause and abuse from the small audience.

"Ah, I see we have some chuds in the audience. Why don't the lot of you go back to skinhead country or the suburbs or wherever reactionary sh-thole you're from and stop impeding our vision for the future? I'm here to fight for an Oregon and an America where the petty atrocities that you take for granted are no longer weighing on our minds and destroying our most vulnerable, not one where you take delight in them."

Dale Scott spends final point on a district-wide newspaper ad

"Ted Miller: a radical who supports UBI and has a drug policy to the left of AOC & The Squad
Doyle Brooks: a radical conspiracy theorist who believes in Qanon and that Trump won the 2020 election with 410 electoral votes
Heather Cooper: a corrupt career politician, who will become a part of the Washington swamp, and has a tendency to lie
Dale Scott: a reasonable, honest candidate who can help fix our economy, and bring prosperity to Oregonians of all walks of life"

Heather Cooper's reply to Dale Scott's newspaper ad: "Funnily enough, his ad seems very similar to one I aired earlier...Mr Scott has used exactly the same talking points as I have, since he's to ignorant and clueless of policy to come up with his own conclusions. The only changes I can see are his baselessly calling me a "corrupt career politician" for serving the people of Oregon's 19th for four years, and calling himself "reasonable" rather than the big businessman, someone who thinks he can buy this seat, that he truly is. And after plagirizing my ad and then baselessly calling me corrupt, he has the audacity to say that I have a 'tendancy to lie.' It's simply laughable, but also outrageous, since Mr Scott thinks he can win over the people of Oregon's 6th through his money and baseless lies and accusations, something I'm calling him out on: the people of Oregon's 6th will see through your lies, Mr Scott, and will not elect you any more than they will elect Yuri Testikov."

Dale Scott holds rallies in Keizer, Albany over the weekend

Scott held a rally in Albany on Saturday night

"Something I failed to address in-depth during my first rally last week in Salem was Joe Biden. His presidency has been a failure from Day 1. His son, Hunter, was dishonorably discharged for cocaine use and dated his late brother's widow. You know what Joe did about this, he did squat. Starting on the day of his inauguration, Biden signed a ton of executive orders, with the two I'd like to address were the order halting construction on the Keystone XL Pipestone and a mask mandate for federal buildings. At the time, the COVID-19 vaccine was available to pretty much nobody, so in theory, the mask mandate was a good idea. However, later that very same day, Biden and his family went unmasked on federal property. I'm not talking about being unmasked in the private quarters of the White House. I'm talking about how the Bidens went unmasked at the Lincoln Memorial, one of the biggest attractions in Washington. Fast forward to July and Biden withdraws from Afghanistan. While I don't oppose the withdrawal, in theory, he handled it exceptionally poorly. We failed to rescue thousands of American civilians from the Taliban and we left our military equipment behind, allowing the Taliban to even further push their dictatorial reign. Under Biden's presidency, inflation has exploded, causing working families to be unable to afford everyday items. A vote for Dale Scott is a vote against the failures of Joe Biden & The Congressional Democrats, meanwhile, a vote for Heather Cooper is a vote for the establishment, and votes for Ted Miller & Doyle Brooks are essentially votes for the failures of Joe Biden because they simply cannot win a general election. I'll publicly eat my words if either Miller or Brooks wins the general election next fall. Good night y'all and drive home safely"

Scott held another rally Sunday afternoon in Keizer

"Good afternoon y'all. It pleases me to see the crowds at every rally, knowing they could be doing anything else, but they chose to come to this rally, to be the change that they want to see. Joe Biden has overseen and caused many failures. The biggest one is the economy, which is a disgrace. Working people are unable to afford basic items, which have skyrocketed in price. Even if you can afford everyday items, they aren't even on store shelves to begin with. The infrastructure bill really shows how much of a failure Biden has been. Even though he's the president, he couldn't get his own party to back his proposals until the eleventh hour. The infrastructure bill is called the Infrastructure and Jobs Act. Give me a break! This act will cost this great nation more jobs than it creates, and only about 10% of it will go to actual infrastructure. The rest of it will go to woke bureaucracies. Meanwhile, Heather Cooper is part of the same political establishment that created this mess. Doyle Brooks and Ted Miller cannot destroy it. I can. A vote for any of my primary opponents is a vote for this mess. Drive home safely, have a good rest of your day"

Heather Cooper on Dale Scott's rallies in Albany and Keizer: "It's a sign of how negative, dishonest, unfocused and clueless Mr Scott's campaign has been, that he has forgotten to even mention the Biden administration until now! It's clear he has no intention whatsoever of fighting the Washington establishment, or for that matter doing anything other than taking advantage of the middle class."

Dale Scott responds to Heather Cooper's attacks on his newspaper ad

"First things first, you pretty much paraphrased my attack on Doyle Brooks in your ad. You seem to reject the notion that I can come up with basic attacks on my own. If you think I am of low intelligence, you seem to be forgetting that I helped run a multi-billion dollar corporation, while you were in our State House of Representatives, only caring about 2 things: your back account balance, and power. I stand against these selfish, and corrupt values"

Dale Scott responds to Heather Cooper's attacks on his rallies
"Coming from Heather Cooper, those attacks calling me a liar with no intent to fight the establishment are rich. In my first rally I was more focused on the people of Oregon, rather than politicians 2,400 miles who don't care about this district or those who live in it. Besides, I mention Biden in that speech, though it only happened a couple of times. While Heather Cooper might have been anti-establishment towards the beginning of her term, the swamp has devoured her."

Heather Cooper proposes anti-negative campaigning agreement


An unfortunate result of primary campaigning is that already, the campaign has become unnecessarily negative on the Republican side; in particular, Dale Scott and I have been launching attacks at each other. This is counteractive to our common goal of a Republican winning in the district next November, since many of these same attacks being used now might be used by the Democratic candidate against the eventual Republican candidate (whether that be Doyle Brooks, Dale Scott, or myself). Aside from that, it is also unhelpful to conservatives across the district, who want to see meaningful proposals and actions taken against the Biden agenda. So I propose an anti-negative campaign pledge. All signatories will be pledging to not attack or slander any of the other signatories (so, for instance, if Doyle Brooks and Dale Scott were to sign this, both would be agreeing to mutually stopping their attacks against each other). This will, I think, help change the atmosphere of this primary (which is unnecessarily negative), and help us focus our attacks on our common adversaries, Joe Biden and the Democrats, who are hurting Americans in this district and elsewhere. Having proposed this agreement, I will be the first to proudly sign it, and am promising that hereonforth I will no longer be launching any negative attacks against any Republican candidate for the district who chooses to sign this agreement as well. Anyone who is interested in signing this pledge and ending negative campaigning in this primary should do so within the next week.

Ryder holds rally in Salem

"Thank you all for coming here!

People often ask why I'm the sort of politician I am: a proudly progressive Democrat. After all, a private business owner is not usually the natural start for someone who supports the same policies as Senator Warren or Senator Sanders.

Nonetheless, those progressive ideals are what has made our country great. The idea of equality for all, that workers are free to join a union, that students should not be left saddled with loans their whole lives, that those at the top should pay a bit more; these are not radical ideas. Many countries in the world do the same thing already.

These ideals informed my apporach as a developer. From the start, we set out to create a business that was friendly to the environment and provided a living wage to everyone who worked for us. Paying good wages-and this is something Republicans don't realise-is simply good business.

So let's bring good business to Washington, and send a message to those who want to trample over the poor and middle class!"


Ad to play in Portland media market: Job creator for Congress

Ryder: "I was interested in how things moved around from the start. How we got places, where we built our homes, why we decided to build something here and not there. Ending up as a land developer was probably inevitable.

At Ryder Community Development, we created jobs for construction workers, planners, administrators and everything in between for people in Salem and Corvallis. We paid a living wage so our workers didn't have to worry about putting food on the table. We made sure our worker were looked after, and able to achieve their full potential.

I'm a job creator, and it's time we stopped surrendering that narrative to Republicans. I'm THomas Ryder, and I'm running for Congress."

Ted Miller for Congress
Salem, Oregon

Thank you folks for coming here! I'd like to thank my employees, and the new owner of my gun shop Bill for being great employees that helped me and our customers and I'd like to start to talk about what I will accomplish in Congress. As a proud gun owner, I will make sure that our Second Amendment rights are protected and I will be a strong voice for protecting gun rights. As a small business owner, I believe we need to cut stupid regulations that hurt innovation and prevent jobs from being created, and as the only small business owner in the race, I'll be a voice in Congress that can do that, unlike the other Republican candidates who have worked in politics or are politicians.

Rep. Cooper: "Interestingly, Mr Miller's opening statement omits to mention the key fact that he would like to legalize all drugs. This is the biggest and most important cornerstone of his candidacy, and he is staying silent on it, because he realizes it will ensure he will lose. Well, folks, I think it's important, whether or not Mr Miller wants you to, that you be informed about the candidates' policies and stances, and in Mr Miller's case, it is the fact that he is a radical who'd like to legalize all drugs and freely allow massive drug abuse, a position that even AOC's Squad consider too extreme. No matter what he may say about guns or small business, no matter how much he hides this aspect of his candidacy, remember that Miller is the candidate for drug abuse."
