Welcome to what is the 1242nd original profile here at “Fanatical Republican Extremist of the Day”, where we’ll be profiling Christine Drazan, a former two-term member of the Oregon House of Representatives who emerged from a nineteen candidate GOP Primary in 2022 with 22% of the vote to become the challenger to Democratic Governor Kate Brown. Drazan’s rise in the polls among the right-wing crowd came from her anti-vaccination views, including her resentment towards schoolchildren being vaccinated against Covid-19. Maybe she should have realized that wasn’t a good path to victory in the general election, considering Gov. Brown’s Covid-19 response had Oregon in the Top 5 in the nation for keeping Covid-19 infections and deaths low.
In the debate against Kate Brown, for whatever reason, when the topic shifted to a mass shooting in Bend, Colorado, Drazan tried to dance around the idea that the incel who carried out the shooting could have been prevented from acquiring firearms through active gun control, and started to frame him as the victim in everything due to his “mental health challenges”, rather than a terrorist who wanted to murder a lot of women he hated. Then again, she is willing to vote against a measure to prohibit guns within the state capitol itself, so…|
Drazan was also unwilling to speak out against fellow Republican candidate Jo Rae Perkins, even though she was a die-hard Qanon supporter.
It's like she backs all the wrong horses. Which, isn’t just related to terrible people. It’s also terrible legislation, as outlined in her obstructionist record as a legislator, where she votes “NO” on virtually everything in her path. Christine Drazan lost in the general election with 43% of the vote after many political pundits predicted a “Red Wave” election where she’d be swept into the Governor’s Mansion.
She is currently out of office, and we hope she stays that way.
