We look forward to seeing her continued success as a leader for the people of Oregon, and the country, in the years to come.”

Additionally, DAGA invested in its first-of-its-kind SMS program to reach more than 1.2 million Oregonians over the course of the cycle to inform them about AG Rosenblum’s leadership on key issues and help get out the vote in the final weeks.

- Oregon AG Ellen Rosenblum’s leadership as a Co-Chair of the Democratic Attorneys General Association has contributed to a successful transition of the Committee over the last few years, the launch of the DAGA’s Women’s Initiative, and to the election of the most diverse coalition of Democratic state Attorneys General in history in 2018.
