SALEM, Ore. (KTVZ) – State Sen. Fred Girod (R-Lyons) voluntarily stepped down as Republican Leader on Friday for health reasons. The caucus elected Sen. Tim Knopp (R-Bend) as the new Republican leader.

The rest of the leadership team remained unchanged.

The newly-elected Senate Republican leader released the following statement:

“I want to thank Senator Girod for his leadership over the last year and a half. He has been a strong conservative champion for Oregon Republicans. He will be missed in leadership, but he is doing what he believes is best for his health, and I support him. Republicans have a great opportunity to showcase our ideas and vision as a viable alternative to decades of failed Democratic leadership in Oregon. I look forward to serving this caucus to do just that.”

    1. Totally fake news!!! Little timmy was virtually the ONLY Republican to condemn big fat failed and fired donnie the orange snowflake!!! Why would the Oregon GOP pick this disgraceful lying traitor!!! They will go with the chairman of the Oregon GOP because he is obsessed with the idea that the coup attempt was antifa!!! ROTFLMAO!!!! trump kooks unite!!!!

        1. I too enjoy watching people suffer from Trump Deprivation Syndrome. Their rage that Tangerine Palpatine failed them and lost on every single level continues to be hilarious.

      1. For once you posted something true. Knope has no loyalty to the party. He is a RINO of RINOS. He needs to get packing! America can better. Oregon can do better.

        1. If you can find any public comments from feel good Tim condemning things like illegal immigrants, human trafficking, vagrancy, failed law enforcement from Brown, oppressive vaxx mandates or ANY type of push back to the Dummycrat lefties, I’d like to see it!
          So far all I’ve seen is self congratulatory statements supporting minor spending projects. Same RINO BS as his linguini spined predesessor Waldorf.
