Peter DeFazio for Congress

Switch Family Robinson

You may have heard that I have a primary challenge this year. Matthew Robinson, the son of my 2010 and most likely 2012 Republican opponent Art Robinson, recently changed his voter registration from Republican to Democrat and filed to run against me in May.

Matthew Robinson is not a Democrat. He has repeatedly said that he shares the same extreme views as his father. In fact, according to the Register-Guard, he "couldn’t identify any major political difference between himself and his father.” The campaigns even share the same campaign manager, the same address, and Art Robinson has solicited contributions for Matthew from his donors.

I assume this is all intended to give Robinson’s wealthy Wall Street hedge fund speculator the opportunity to run attack ads against me in the primary in the hopes of forcing me to spend resources defending myself and weakening me for the general election rematch with Art Robinson.

My campaign has put together a video about this bizarre political stunt and the extreme views of both Robinsons. Take a look:

I may not have the deep pockets of Wall Street billionaires, but I have you.

Thank you for your tremendous support.

Onward to victory,
