Gubernatorial Campaign Archives

Key Positions

If you believe that: 

We MUST protect the Second Amendment and defend the Constitution before both are lost.

Allowing our beautiful and valuable forests to burn annually is BAD forest management.

Parents, NOT politicians, should control decisions that will shape our children’s futures.

We should STAND with and provide more support for our police, NOT defund them.

ENABLING and encouraging our homeless DOES NOT WORK.

The government has NO PLACE in our personal medical decisions. 

FAILED government leadership and over-regulation are crippling our businesses.

The unborn are PRECIOUS assets and we must fight for their right to life.

THRIVING farmers, ranchers, loggers and miners equal a more self-sufficient state.

The Rural-Urban divide MUST END, and solid leadership is needed to bring us together.

FAIR and HONEST elections are critical if we want to keep our Republic.

America is the shining light on the hill—and we have to fight to save her, state by state . . . 

. . . then I'm the candidate for you.

“I’m proud to endorse Kerry McQuisten for Oregon Governor. Kerry is a Trump-supporting, principled conservative who will fight every day to Make Oregon Great Again. Oregonians need real leadership and common sense reforms from a political outsider who will always put Oregon first.”
—David Bossie
Senior Advisor to President Trump, Deputy Campaign Manager for Trump 2016 presidential campaign, President of Citizens United, Producer of the film “Rigged”

“I am proud to endorse my fellow patriot, Kerry McQuisten. Kerry is a warrior for our freedoms, and I have full confidence in her ability to tackle the hard issues faced by Oregonians, including election integrity.”
—Dr. Kelli Ward
Speaker, Author, Arizona Republican Party State Chair, Election Integrity Expert

“In this effort to set our country back on the path of greatness, we must begin a revival in the states. Arguably no state has paid more dearly for wokeness and incompetence than has Oregon. Having hit an historic low under Kate Brown, now is the time of choosing for Oregon voters. A Republican for Governor can win in Oregon this election, America. But Republicans will need to nominate a candidate with executive experience, who proudly represents rural values, and leads with common sense conservatism. That is why I’m proud to support Kerry McQuisten for Governor.”
—Steve Yates
Former White House Deputy National Security Advisor for the Vice President under the George W. Bush Administration, 
former Chair of the Idaho Republican Party, and former 
President of Radio Free Asia under the Trump administration

“I’m always happy to have the chance to endorse a true conservative—but not just a conservative—a conservative with a real path to victory in the fall general election. I encourage all rural Oregon voters to gather their support around Kerry, and not allow their valuable votes to be split elsewhere in the primary. Kerry is the only candidate with extensive hands-on experience and understands the value of our natural resource industries. She has a true love for Oregon’s rural counties that we haven’t seen in Salem in a very long time. As Co-Chairman of the Trump for President Oregon campaign, I believe Mayor McQuisten with be an Oregon First governor, not a special interests-driven chief executive.”
—Greg Barreto
Former Oregon State Representative, Entrepreneur and business owner

“Kerry McQuisten is very conservative. I spent much of the last 15 hours talking with people about Kerry McQuisten before writing this. Oregon, you’d better have a serious captain on the bridge of that leaking boat. One that will enable law enforcement to go head-to-head against antifa/BLM terrorists, and get those drug addicts off the streets. If I were an Oregon voter, I’d vote for Kerry. Heck, given that ALL voting for this is mail-in, I can probably vote 10,000 times from Russia and China.”
—Michael Yon
Author, Combat Correspondent, Public Speaker, Green Beret

“2022 Could be a turning year for liberty in Oregon. The grassroots base is fired up like never before, and now has a real chance to take the state back. Kerry McQuisten is the best chance to inspire the base and unite every sector of the freedom movement. She has a proven record in grassroots activism, and plenty of hands-on political experience. I unreservedly endorse Kerry McQuisten for Governor.”
—Trevor Loudon
Filmmaker, Author, Public Speaker, “Epoch Times” contributor, and America First activist

“I’ve often heard that courage is contagious. Being a good leader is not a title that is given; it’s earned through hard work and doing what is right, even when it’s hard. Standing up for individual freedoms, supporting our law enforcement, and supporting our Constitution are what we need in a leader right now. I believe Kerry McQuisten is the leader Oregon needs going forward. Stand with me and the many others by supporting Kerry McQuisten for Governor.”
—Cody Bowen
Union County Sheriff, Oregon

“Kerry McQuisten was instrumental in helping Clatskanie pass a resolution to defying the shutdowns by Kate Brown, allowing our businesses to open. She’s smart, strong, and genuine—not a career politician. With her leading us, we can restore Oregon back to the common sense state it used to be.”
—Jean Hogan-Sampson
Clatskanie City Councilor, Oregon

“Kerry McQuisten could easily become the next Kristi Noem among U.S. governors. This would be a welcome change to the leadership image our state has on the national stage today. Having shared the stage with many of the candidates, as well and talking with them behind the scenes, I’ve gained valuable insight—who they are and what’s motivating them to run for the high office of Oregon’s Chief Executive Officer. What I can say is that the remaining field of candidates has one leader remaining in the race who is able to address the real issues facing this state and the 3.9 million citizens who call Oregon home. I encourage everyone to support Kerry McQuisten in her bid to become the next governor.”
—Jim Huggins
Former 2022 Oregon Gubernatorial Candidate, Business Owner, Filmmaker, Retired Decorated Air Force Officer, Author

“I’m a retired police chief with over 50 years in public safety. I have known Kerry for many years. She says what she means, and means what she says. She is a strong gun rights advocate, and is behind our public safety / law enforcement personnel 1000%. She knows why this state has gone downhill under recent governors—and she knows how to turn that around. She reminds me very much of South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem in terms of ideology and the willingness to fight for the rights of our state’s citizens.”
—Jerry Boyd
Former Chief of Police (CA), Retired Baker City Police Department Reserve Commander (OR)

“There’s a stark difference between Kerry McQuisten and the rest of the field. She’s actually showing Oregon voters what she can do—in real time, and with conviction and courage. Just check out Baker City and what they have committed to in regards to oppressive, wrong-headed and economy-killing policies put in place by Governor Kate Brown. It’s epic democracy in action, and Baker City, under Mayor McQuisten, is defending the rights of the citizens.”
—Ken Taylor
Former Oregon Republican Party State Treasurer

“If you seek better access, health, and productivity from our forests and public lands (instead of smoke and bad decisions) elect Kerry McQuisten as Oregon’s next Governor. She has hands-on, real-world knowledge of natural resources, public lands management, and forest access issues. Oregonians deserve better care of these natural treasures.”
—Rep. Ken Ivory, JD (Utah)
House Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environmental Quality Appropriations Subcommittee, Founding President of American Lands Council, House Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment Committee

“I fully support Kerry McQuisten for Governor of Oregon. For too long our government has implemented a hands-off approach to lands management, allowing fuel loads to increase, resulting in catastrophic wildfires … Oregon needs a Governor like Kerry who will take care of our public lands.”
—Kerry White
Former State Representative (Montana)
Chair of the House Committee on Natural Resources

“I solidly endorse Kerry McQuisten for governor of Oregon. The governor’s office is an executive-level position, and we need Kerry’s management ability in that seat if Oregon is to be represented effectively on a national scale. She’s a real conservative, and I’ve seen her advocate for parents’ rights, including homeschooling, and our Second Amendment rights. She was raised on a cattle ranch with mining and timber; her heart is there. With this endorsement, I’m asking Oregon voters to unite behind her in the primary so that we have the strongest candidate in the general election.”
—Chris Barreto
Former Oregon National Committeewoman to the RNC, RNC Delegate to the 2016 National Convention, Trump Delegate, Credentials Committee 2012 RNC Convention

“Kerry was born and raised in Oregon, and is a passionate advocate for farmers, ranchers, miners and loggers. She is an entrepreneur, not a politician, which sets her apart from other serial candidates. Her experience in City Council means she knows how government works—and doesn’t. She can hit the ground running on day one of her term.”
—Shelly Cutler
Executive Director, Baker County Chamber of Commerce

“Knowing what Kerry McQuisten has done for the Eastern Oregon community is the reason I was inspired to step up and try to help the people of Elgin. Kerry helped create a Second Amendment Sanctuary, a Common Sense Sanctuary—and tries to right the wrongs in our state that have gone on far too long. It has been hard not having a voice in Eastern Oregon all these years, but Kerry is from here. She is the champion we need for the entire state.”
—J.T. Thorne
Elgin City Councilor (Oregon)

“I started talking with Kerry when she led the charge to stand up against Kate Brown’s lockdowns and mandates. I was happy to join that fight on behalf of my own city. The resolution she wrote helped elected officials around the state stand up for our people. She is a warrior to preserve our rights as Americans.”
—Sherry Haeger
Mayor of Cove, Oregon

“As a 3rd generation Oregonian, retired Navy veteran and former law enforcement officer, and now farmer, I believe Kerry exemplifies what a governor should be. She is articulate, personable, and truly cares for all of Oregon—not just the I-5 corridor. She supports the Oregon and U.S. Constitutions, and she’s not afraid to stand up to political tyrants to defend us.”
—Brian Guinther
Owner, Conyers Creek Ranch (Columbia County, Oregon)

“We’ve known Kerry since she was a child, when her grandparents helped us form the Eastern Oregon Mining Council. She is the only candidate who has real-life experience when it comes to ranching and mining. She is the only candidate who has personally experienced how government regulations are killing these industries.”
—Chuck Chase and Ed Hardt
Two founding members of the Eastern Oregon Mining Council, which later became the Eastern Oregon Mining Association

“When I saw Kerry McQuisten on the Pete Hegseth segment of Fox Primetime, I was a huge fan from that moment on. Her appearance on the Stuart Varney show solidified that she is what Oregon needs to get us from the 35 years of headed toward a cliff. I’ve since met her several times, and have been more impressed each time.”
—Maurice Yoder
Business Owner, Yamhill County Republican Chair (Oregon)

“I’ve known Kerry McQuisten for years. She doesn’t lie or change her message to fit the audience. She’ll encourage true history to be taught in schools, rather than the propaganda of the moment. She’ll honor those who keep us safe, and enforce consequences for those who break our laws. She’ll fight the progressive juggernaut and restore freedoms already seized from us. The only sanctuary she’ll create is the sanctuary of constitutionally guaranteed individual freedoms! No other candidate is even close on these principles.”
—James Kopp, MD
Retired Orthopedic Surgeon, Navy Veteran, Native Oregonian

“Americans Resisisting Body Ownership Corruption started as a group of state employees trying to stop Kate Brown’s mandates. Today our group is nearly 2,500 strong. Our message hasn’t changed since the beginning: We want a new boss! Kerry McQuisten has fought for citizens and stood up against tyranny—and that’s a boss we want to hire. We support common sense leadership who cares about Oregon.”
—Cathleen Vokral
Co-founder of Arboc-21 Medical Freedom Group

“I served 30 years in law enforcement with 20 as Sheriff. I worked together with Kerry McQuisten as Baker County PCPs. She’s conservative—always has been. She doesn’t just talk the talk—she walks the walk. She was raised on a ranch and understands the problems faced by ranchers trying to earn a living. She was successful working for others in big business, then started her own successful business. She understands what it takes to make things work. She studies problems from all sides, then applies herself to taking care of the problem. Kerry’s campaign is grassroots, which means she has no huge donors trying to buy some influence. It’s time we had a common sense Governor who listens to all the people. That person is Kerry McQuisten.”
—Terry Speelman
Retired Baker County Sheriff, Former member of the State Prison Sitting Advisory Board, State Medical Examiner Advisory Board, Hanford Waste Transport Advisory Committee

“There are many, many Republican candidates in the race for Governor of Oregon. However, there’s only one candidate who actively holds a strong, conservative stance. That candidate is Kerry McQuisten. She has shown by her actions as Baker City Mayor that she stands for freedom and the constitutional power of We the People. For that, I give my endorsement to Kerry McQuisten.”
—Adam Craven
Brownsville City Councilor (Oregon)

“I have decided to endorse a Republican candidate who is a constitutional conservative who can set Oregon back on the right track. We need a constitutional renaissance, and voting for Kerry McQuisten gives us the best chance for that to happen.”
—Ben Fisher
Editor, “Northwest Observer”
