Campaign themes


Owens's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]


  • Excerpt: "As a small business owner I understand the importance of a strong economy and job creation. Helping Oregonians get back to work will be a top priority."


  • Excerpt: "Cover Oregon has been a disaster and, with Governor Kitzhaber's mismanagement, this scandal has wasted hundreds of millions of your hard-earned dollars. We need common sense coverage that works for all Oregonians and policies that allow those with insurance to keep their doctors and their coverage."

Constitution/2nd Amendment

  • Excerpt: "As your Representative I pledge to protect and defend our constitutional rights and especially the 2nd Amendment."


  • Excerpt: "Oregon is a State of tremendous opportunity and I recognize that many people wish to come here to take advantage of the many benefits Oregon has to offer. I support that. However, this must be accomplished legally or it will not work."


  • Excerpt: "As a Veteran myself and having come from a family of Veterans, I understand the challenges that face our brothers and sisters who have served and who are still serving. I believe Oregon's veterans deserve every benefit and accommodation we can provide them in honor of their service to our Nation."
