Campaign themes

2012

On his 2012 campaign site, Knopp highlighted the following themes:

  • Excerpt: "The 2012 election is a time for choosing between two paths which will define our State and Country forever: one of freedom and limited government or that of insurmountable government debt and control over every aspect of our lives. We need a candidate who can not only articulate a message of freedom and limited government, but provide the leadership to help pass effective legislative bills that will create results, which will mean jobs for all Central Oregonians seeking them. I’m committed to doing all that can be done, and I have a record of results as a conservative Republican getting legislation passed that supports our principles."
