Buehler Raises Over One Million Dollars – Most Money in Race
Buehler passes $1,000,000 mark and raises $652,113 from over 4,200 donors in first quarter.
BEND – Today Dr. Knute Buehler announced he has raised over $1,000,000 from nearly 7,000 donors for his campaign to represent Oregon’s second congressional district. Knute raised over $650,000 from more than 4,200 donors during Quarter 1 of the FEC filing period ending on April 1.
The $652,113 Knute raised in Quarter 1 was twice what any candidate for Oregon’s second congressional district raised and puts him with the highest total raised for the campaign to date.
“I’m grateful to the nearly 7,000 grassroots donors to our campaign in just 16 weeks; 97% of our donors live in OR and over 50% of support comes from folks who have lived, voted, and paid taxes in CD2, which is something not even every candidate running can say. No matter what we’re up against, I’ll always fight for our conservative values.”
Born and raised in Roseburg, Knute grew up working in the woods and driving a Pepsi delivery truck. Knute and his two brothers were the first in their family to attend college. Knute earned his undergraduate degree from Oregon State, played baseball and was a Rhodes Scholar. After attending Oxford University, Knute earned his medical degree from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He and his wife Patty, a successful eye surgeon, have been married for 29 years and have two grown children.
Knute was elected to the Oregon House in 2014 and re-elected in 2016. Knute was the Republican nominee for Governor in 2018. In four statewide elections – primary and general – Knute has won the second congressional district four times.
