NRCC Statement on Janelle Bynum

June 21, 2023

After Janelle Bynum — the handpicked candidate of extreme Democrats in Washington D.C. — announced she will run in the 5th Congressional district, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) released the following statement:

“Every crisis Oregon faces, extreme liberal Janelle Bynum has made worse.  From sustained attacks on public safety and voting to slash first responders’ pensions, to exploding homelessness and skyrocketing inflation, and billion dollar tax increases, Bynum’s dangerous far-left agenda is a risk Oregon families cannot afford. After two failed attempts to become Oregon House Speaker, Bynum has embarked on another failing mission.” – NRCC Spokesperson Ben Petersen


  • Janelle Bynum is the handpicked candidate of extreme D.C. Democrats. Bynum said Democrat Leader Hakeem Jeffries “called her and encouraged her to run.”
  • Bynum will now struggle and fail to distance herself from Jeffries and House Democrats’ extreme far-left positions.
