Planned Parenthood PAC of Oregon Endorses Governor Kate Brown

Planned Parenthood PAC of Oregon today announced its endorsement of Governor Kate Brown for re-election in 2018.

"Now more than ever, Oregonians need a women's health champion like Governor Kate Brown," said Becca Uherbelau, Board Chair of Planned Parenthood PAC of Oregon.
