Many politicos take a look at Oregon and think, “No way. No way can a conservative win in Oregon.”

Well, we have news for you. There is a conservative who can win and he happens to be running in the perfect district to win.

His name is Colm Willis.

Back in 2010, Colm worked for one of the principles here at the Madison Project, Drew Ryun, as part of a major effort to elect more conservatives. As a field staffer, Colm excelled and after the election was over, became Political Director for Oregon Right to Life. A native Oregonian, Colm graduated from Willamette University College of Law in 2015 and represents nonprofits, individuals and entrepreneurs in the Willamette Valley.

Not only is Colm a full spectrum conservative, he showed considerable political wherewithal by winning the multi-candidate primary for Oregon’s 5th Congressional District with 58% of the vote and now heads towards the fall as the Republican nominee in a district that currently polls R+7 on the generic ballot.

With the right resources this race is very winnable. Colm has done the hard work this point by coalescing conservatives in OR-5 around his campaign. It’s now time for the national groups to engage and we are happy to lead the way today by endorsing Colm Willis for Congress.
