Constitutional Conservative, Republican, GOP

Thanks for your vote, support, prayers and hard work. We could not have won this primary without you!

As we look towards the general election this November, I encourage you to hold fast to the exceptional ideals of America. Without a solid foundation of knowledge, wisdom and character, we cannot defeat tyrannical leftist culture and policies.

So, I urge all of my friends to spend a few minutes on the 3 R's:

As Republicans, we should be different from the progressive left. We stand apart with thoughtfulness, history and freedom on our side, aspiring to individual liberty, not political control.

Thank you again for voting for Constitutional values and true conservatism. I know there's a lot of work yet to be done as we fight for our public land use, timber industry, water rights and other real-world concerns - but today, I am elated that our values succeeded in this primary battle. Together, we can do great things for Oregon and I am so honored by your support.

Hold fast to your Republican ideals,
Hold fast to your yard signs too: we'll need them in November!

(Or, call Diane, 541-892-6512, to arrange for a pick up.)

Thanks for Your VOTE !!

Please_stopBack in March, I drove to Salem and paid $25 to run for Senate District 28. So many people have asked me about the filing, and the answer for why I am running is simple: I care about my community and about rural Oregon, unlike the liberals who are so upset about my candidacy. Every registered Republican in this district had from September 2015  through March 8, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. to file for office. No one else did so.

As a conservative, I’m happy to debate anyone, anytime about the principles of limited government and individual liberty. I think that the ideals of American exceptionalism and free market capitalism can defeat any other ideology, any day.

Unfortunately, my opponents know they can’t win, so they don’t want to have an open debate - instead they create a false narrative, tricking voters and accumulating more power for themselves.

For instance, look at this postcard from the liberal traitors in our own Republican party promoting an individual who personally claims to be, "a moderate, who is willing to cross the aisle and work with Democrats":


As you read this propaganda, do you wonder why his "moderate credentials" are left off?

Plus, every registered Republican in Senate District #28 has been receiving calls from large-scale call-centers, trying to influence voters while pretending to simply be polling for opinions.

This is the new trend in dirty politics - using big money to influence voters, rather than letting voters hear from the candidates themselves.

I have a grassroots campaign - no big Salem money or Washington D.C. dollars here. Every eMail you receive from me, actually comes from me, the candidate! This is how politics should be: real people with real convictions having real conversations about real-world policies.

Contrast this with my opponents:


As you can see, the company creating these postcards is on the 10th floor of a high rise on Connecticut Ave. in D.C. I’m sure they’re nice digs, but it doesn’t sound like rural Oregon to me.  Also notice the Jobs PAC has the same physical address as the Oregon PERS Retiree PAC. Coincidence?

The political elites are so out of touch with rural Oregonians they need this polling data to figure out what values appeal to the voters. Once they know what voters want, they use their bank accounts to create a false narrative to sway public opinion.

The Republican voters in District 28 obviously told the pollsters that they would only vote for a principled, trustworthy and conservative candidate.

So, the PACs create a false claim that the write-in candidate is the “True Conservative.”  But we know that this hand-picked lackey will abandon us after his first lobbyist luncheon; after all, his candidacy is being paid for by special interests!

Enough is enough.

Let’s show these liberal PACs that we can’t be bought or fooled. Vote for true rural Oregon values, with a true rural Oregonian candidate! I have a proven record of standing against special interests and standing up for our small towns, communities, farmers, ranchers and hard-working families.

Thanks for your vote and support!

Linthicum best choice in Senate District 28

Back in 2013 I had some questions for Dennis when he was our county commissioner.  I found him very professional and understanding of my concerns with regards to county management.  He was very approachable and was genuinely concerned with the subjects that I brought to him.

 He also shared my values with regards to the Constitution of the United States and our community here. I believe Dennis has the values that represent this county, rural Oregon and what we all stand for. He is a family man, business man, property owner and rancher here in

Klamath County and not a career politician. We truly need him and men like him to help straighten out this state.   A_vote_for_linth

He is for reducing regulatory and tax burdens on business.  He supports the proper utilization of Oregon's vast forest and mineral resources.

He's against this insane dam removal process on the Klamath River and supports the redefining of all hydro power facilities as renewable energy sources.  This will ensure clean, affordable and abundant energy supplies here in the basin for generations to come.

Dennis is against the continually growing government and one that tells us how to live.  He will support our liberties and work to give us our state back!

He wants to return control of our community back to the local level where we truly know what our community needs. We know best how to run our schools, law enforcement and even how to irrigate our lands.

A vote for Dennis Linthicum is a vote for common sense economics, local control, Constitutional and family values and will be a great start to straighten out our state government. Please vote with me and support Dennis Linthicum for State Senate District 28.

Linthicum has what is needed in District 28

Our candidate for Senate District 28 must have solid family values, have demonstrated strong social and fiscal conservative philosophies, be willing to fulfill his oath to uphold the Constitution, be a forceful speaker and good writer, and above all, must be willing to speak out effectively for the rural values our constituents hold dear. Dennis Linthicum possesses all these attributes and more.

Dennis, with his wife of 36 years Diane, have lived a deeply religious social and fiscal conservative rural lifestyle while raising their two kids. Their children are happily married, gainfully employed college graduates.

As Klamath County commissioner, Dennis demonstrated his willingness and ability to politically develop those social, fiscal and conservative values. He worked hard to limit and prioritize county spending, and slow the encroachment of state and federal government regulation and control.


Dennis is a consensus builder who knows how to compromise and to get things done while consistently refusing to undermine the constitutional values that we hold dear.

Dennis takes his oath to uphold the Constitution seriously. He will continue to protect and advocate for freedom of speech and the right to assemble, freedom of religion, private property and irrigation rights, our Second Amendment rights for self-protection and the Tenth Amendment rights for states to self-govern.

Dennis is an outstanding speaker who has written dozens of contemporary political essays. We are confident he will make an outstanding State Senator. Gail and I ask you to join us in voting for Dennis Linthicum for Senate District 28.

Doug Whitsett
