Bill Post files for re-election
House District 25 representative Bill Post officially filed for re-election for the 2020 campaign on Sept. 23, seeking a fourth term to represent the communities of Keizer, St. Paul, Newberg and the French Prairie region west of Interstate 5.
Post made his announcement via social media and on his campaign website, arguing for conservative pushback to the Democratic majorities in the House and Senate at the Oregon state capitol.
Post highlighted House Bill 2020 — the Cap & Trade bill — regulations on small businesses and increased taxes as targets from the 2019 Legislative Session that he wanted to fight back against, raising more than $4,000 in donations in the 48 hours after his announcement.
The Republican representative and conservative talk radio host made his foray into Oregon politics in 2014, defeating primary opponent Barbara Jensen and Independent challenger Chuck Lee in the general election.
Post went on to win two more terms, defeating Democratic nominees Sharon Freeman in 2016 and Dave McCall in 2018.
