Democrat Governors are playing a game, who can declare the longest shutdown. As other states begin to ease guidelines and restrictions Democrat governors trying to crush our economy are extending their stay at home orders.
Democrat Governor Kate Brown has decided that she wants to win the competition and has extended her states shutdown to July 6th!
The state is rank 40 our 50 for the number of coronavirus tests and has had a total of 104 deaths, counties in Pennsylvania have more cases and deaths.
Her decision has sparked mass protests in her state.

Fox News reports:
Hundreds of protesters in Oregon rallied Saturday against Gov. Kate Brown’s stay-at-home order meant to curb the spread of coronavirus, joining the ranks of Americans across the country calling to reopen the economy.
Oregon has been under lockdown since March 23, shuttering most businesses and imposing strict social distancing measures.
Outside the Capitol in Salem, Manulani Lopes told FOX12 Oregon her family was “plowing through our savings” and inquired how they were “going to put food on the table.”
“It is our right to work, we have that right to work,” said Lopes, who lives in Troutdale, a city about 17 miles east of Portland. “Americans are smart. We know how to take care of ourselves and our families. We will take precautions.”
On Friday, Brown extended Oregon’s state of emergency to July 6, which gives the governor authority to maintain the stay-at-home order, financial stimulus measures, and other orders she’s issued so far, the paper reported. Brown can end the extension earlier if deemed appropriate.
Adam Ellifritt, spokesman for Oregon Uniting for Liberty, which organized Saturday’s protest, told Fox News last week that Brown’s virus response is government overreach.
“She’s not following federal guidelines. She’s following her own guidelines,” he said. “I think she has massively failed to a great extent in the state of Oregon, but she was failing prior to coronavirus in the policies that she set up.”
When Gov. Whitmer finds out about this I wonder if she tries to outdo Brown?
