Buehler Relocates; Doesn't Announce State House Plans
BEND, OR -- Knute Buehler has moved into House District 54, but the former secretary of state candidate has not yet said whether he will make a run for the seat. Buehler lived within Bend’s House seat for 14 years before redistricting shifted the boundaries last year. His new home is within the district being vacated by Representative Jason Conger, who is leaving to run for the US Senate. But a spokeswoman for Buehler told the Oregonian he will not say for another 2 to 3 weeks whether he’ll run for the Legislature.
Buehler, a Republican, lost his bid for secretary of state in 2012. House District 54 is expected to be a closely watched race in 2014.
