During his 15 years as a federal prosecutor and as U.S. Attorney for Oregon, Dwight Holton has appeared in court over 1000 times, successfully prosecuting gangs, drug traffickers and terrorists. He’s been tough on crime, but he’s also been smart on crime. In Oregon, Holton worked with local law enforcement officers to keep illegal guns out of the hands of domestic abusers.
Holton also stood up for consumers by attacking mortgage and financial fraud, put corporate polluters in prison and defended Oregonians’ civil rights.
Holton’s successful track record is why Oregon’s law enforcement and public safety community have lined up in support of his candidacy. Holton is endorsed by 56 Oregon sheriffs and district attorneys. Not one sheriff or current district attorney has endorsed Holton’s opponent.
“It’s one thing to say that you will go after human traffickers, sex offenders who use the Internet to target children and those who defraud families out of their homes, but Dwight’s actually done it,” said Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts. “Dwight is the only candidate with the experience and leadership Oregonians can trust to make Oregon communities safer and stronger.”
