PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — In an op-ed for The Huffington Post, Oregon Governor Kate Brown appeals to voters to “do what’s right” when it comes to Donald Trump.

Read Brown’s full op-ed

Brown writes that Donald Trump is unfit to be the next president. The editorial calls out Trump for his insults, “fear mongering,” and apparent lack of interest in the issues American’s face.

In the op-ed, Brown emphasizes the importance of voting, and her own personal mission to give people better access to voter registration in Oregon

“To Trump, only one voice matters – his” — Kate Brown

She calls on Republicans in particular not to support Trump if they want what’s best for America. Brown says this should be an easy choice because Trump has proven himself to be a “reckless and volatile bigot.”

Brown also spoke to New York Times columnist Nicolas Kristof in a Facebook Live video about Trump’s chances of winning in Oregon, women in leadership and LGBTQ issues and what Hillary Clinton will bring to the table as president, among other things.
