Nike co-founder donates $1 million to Oregon GOP gubernatorial election

“It’s not really $1 million for Drazan or $3.75 (million) for Betsy. It’s $4.75 (million) against Tina Kotek,” Tweed told the outlet.

“Each contestant brought in $13…14…16.5 million. We are just getting started. I know people are tired of seeing ads, but sit down and get ready,” she added.

The donation comes as Christine Drazan stands close to unseating Kotek in a deep blue state that hasn’t elected a Republican governor since Vic Atiyeh in 1982.

As Breitbart News reported last week, a recent Emerson College poll showed the Oregon House Republican leader actually leading Koteck by two points — 36% to 34%.

A new survey from Emerson College Polling shows former Oregon House Republican Leader Drazan ahead of former State House Speaker Tina Kotek (D) – 36% to 34%. Nineteen percent of those polled plan to vote for former Democratic-turned-independent senator Betsy Johnson. The poll was conducted between September 30 and October 1 with 796 highly likely voters from Oregon. The survey’s credibility interval (CI), similar to a margin of error, is ±3.4 percentage points.

KGW political analyst Len Bergstein agreed with Rebecca Tweed that Phil Knight’s donation should be seen as a jab at Kotek by potentially setting Drazan on the path to victory.

“As soon as he sees polls that say ‘wait a minute, there’s a chance Drazan will win,’ he says maybe my money could make a difference in pushing her to the top,” Bergstein said.
