Republicans Gone Wild? - 2018-03-29
Lockwood is a clever, biting, often charming millennial. Flamboyantly gay in tone, he also seems completely unconcerned about freaking out Democrats or his fellow Republicans.
A transplant from Colorado, Lockwood was called "flat-out deranged" by The Denver Post in an oft-quoted editorial before he came to Oregon late in 2016 to be a spokesman for Oregon's state Senate Republicans. Oregon Republicans, he says, are "much more accepting and open-minded in a lot of ways," citing an anti-gay House leader in Colorado.
Some of Lockwood's legislative press release gems have included an August 2017 release on a bill that provides expanded coverage for some Oregonians to access free reproductive health services. "Former abortion lobbyist Gov. Kate Brown signs into law Abortion Free for All," Lockwood writes.
