Jo-Rae Perkins US SenateMake a difference in 2014 and vote for the U.S. Senate candidate who is running  “For Oregon – For America – For Such A Time As This”!  

Jo Rae Perkins – U.S. Senate Candidate 

 “I promise I will work hard for the people of Oregon and defend the Constitution of These United States of America.”  I am asking for your vote on May 20, 2014 for the Republican nomination to be Oregon’s next U.S. Senator.

Thank you everyone who supported my candidacy and who voted for me. I am both honored and humbled to be counted worthy of your trust and confidence in me. 

Here is an interview recorded on April 23rd.  The person interviewing me is Hasso Herring.  He made Lars Larson look like a pussy cat. KGAL Valley Talk

Jo Rae Perkins responds to the Willamette Week interview.


I have received several questions from people wanting to know why I did not hang up the phone when Mark was booted from the interview.  Quite simply, I did not know he was booted.  Mark and I were both scheduled to be in Roseburg at 6:30 p.m., so I knew he would be leaving early.  The Roseburg event is why I was not on site.  I felt it was not the best use of my time and resources to drive from Albany to Portland for an interview with a publication that I was not expecting to be endorsed by, then have to leave 30 minutes later for a 4 hour drive.

If you watch the video, you will notice on multiple occasions, I asked them to repeat the question, then I restated it back to make sure I had heard correctly.  I could hear Mark fine, because his voice carries.  I could not hear the staff person as his voice was much quieter and he was father away from the phone.

What did I hear? I heard Mark immediately defending me.  I heard some of the dialog, then I heard Mark say he had better things to do.  Again, since I knew he would be leaving early, I thought no big deal.  What I did not hear them say to Mark is, ‘you can leave now.’

Had I heard that part of the conversation, I would have stood with Mark and hung up the phone.

Mark is fine young man and a gentleman.  We are running against each other in this primary.  There are many issues facing this country, I ask you to read over my platform and then vote for the candidate that most meets your values. I also ask you to consider life experience along with the values.  Should you have more questions on this matter, please feel free to email me at JoRae@PerkinsforUSSenate.com or call me at 541.979.5395.

The Oath of Office

I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

Jo Rae is Running for the U.S. Senate because

She is concerned about the direction elected officials have taken These United States of America. Our Founders and Framers formed a more perfect union of States, each with its own sovereignty through The Declaration of Independence, The U.S. Constitution and The Bill of Rights. They believed a government closer to the people would be more efficient and effective. They knew a large centralized government would lead to an over-arching form of rule, taking power away from the local citizens.

Clearly the Federal Government is becoming centralized and over-arching. The time has come to shrink the size of the government. It is also time to remind our citizens that the United States is a Republic, not a Democracy. And, it is time the Federal Government follows the U.S. Constitution. Jo Rae Perkins will work diligently towards to shrinking the government and restoring our Republic. She also believes it is important we work towards understanding each others views in order to bring about consensus. She will work towards stopping the political battles that tear at the very fabric of United States. Only then will America will be restored as the ‘Shining City on the Hill’.

Her background in financial planning, budgets, banking, and real estate along with her many years of civic and community involvement have prepared Jo Rae Perkins to faithfully represent Oregon at the federal level. This is the time to elect Jo Rae Perkins to the U.S. Senate.
