Sen. Tim Knopp: As a result of Peter Courtney’s retirement, the Democrats in the Senate got together on Friday at Salishan Resort to nominate their candidate for the position of Senate president. According to Senate Republican Leader Tim Knopp, R-Bend, who made the following statement, the selection of Senator Rob Wagner, a Democrat from Lake Oswego, “suggests a disturbing new trend.”
Sen. Tim Knopp Of Oregon Is Disappointed In The Democrats’ “Deeply Partisan”
“Residents of Oregon are dealing with a number of problems, all of which demand action from the Oregon Legislature. Voters have made it clear that they believe it is more important than ever for their elected officials to cooperate with one another across party lines in light of the close results in many crucial Senate seats and the elimination of the supermajority.

“I am dismayed that the first move Democrats are doing in preparation for the 2023 Session is to identify a new nominee for Senate President without seeking any feedback from Republicans. This is disappointing to me. Senator Wagner has demonstrated that he cannot be trusted, that he is extremely partisan, and that he does not possess the abilities necessary to govern the Senate in a manner that is bipartisan. Senator Wagner is not receiving any support from within the Republican caucus in the Senate.
If Democrats are serious about bringing people together in Oregon to find solutions to our challenges, Republicans are ready to help. “Knopp’s conclusion was that if Democrats wish to run a progressive program in order to pay back their supporters, they may anticipate absolute opposition.”

Despite the fact that certification will not take place until December, the Republican congressman believes that the Democrats are on pace to lose their supermajority while maintaining their majority in the Senate by a narrow margin. The total margin of victory in Senate District 3 is roughly 2,850 votes, and the total margin of defeat in Senate District 20 is approximately the same.
