Oregon Senate District 28

Oregon General Election – November 8, 2016
Oregon Senate District 28
There are only 2 candidates in this race, one Republican and one Democrat.
1.  The Democratic Party candidate is Todd D. Kepple, of Klamath Falls.  On his filing paper with the Secretary of State, he gives his occupation as County museum manager and his occupational background as Newspaper reporter and editor, Nondenominational minister.  He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Ministry from Abilene Christian University.
His campaign website is at: http://keppleforsenate.com/.  It contains an Issues section at:
http://keppleforsenate.com/platform/ but there is no mention of immigration.  He did not reply to the Oregon Abigail Adams Voter Education survey.  His views on immigration presumably align with those of the Democratic Party which stands for amnesties and benefits to illegal aliens, and greatly expanded legal immigration.
2.  The Republican candidate is Dennis Linthicum, of Beatty, Klamath County.  He is a former Klamath County Commissioner, software developer, rancher, and small business owner.  He holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from University of California at Los Angeles.
He replied to the Oregon Abigail Adams Voter Education survey’s questions on immigration:  
19. Do you support restricting the "emergency clause" in legislation as true emergencies?  Yes.  22.  Do you support a constitutional amendment to require proof of U.S. citizenship to register to vote in Oregon? Yes.   36. Do you support requiring all Oregon employers to use the federal E-Verify system to determine the employee's work eligibility status?   Yes.
In the 2014 Primary, Dennis Linthicum ran for Congress in Congressional District 2, and he replied then to the NumbersUSA candidate questionnaire.  On the basis of his replies he was rated a True Immigration Reformer
