Governor Brown says she was victim of domestic violence

PORTLAND - During a heated exchange with her opponent in the gubernatorial race Friday, Gov. Kate Brown revealed that she has been a victim of domestic violence.

Brown made the disclosure during the second debate with GOP gubernatorial nominee Dr. William “Bud” Pierce, hosted by the City Club of Portland at the Sentinel hotel.

Moderator Laura Gunderson of The Oregonian asked a city club member’s question about what the candidates would do to improve the lot of women. The member referenced a report last week by the Women’s Foundation of Oregon that found Oregon women continue to be victims of domestic violence and sexual assault at high rates.

“I know what it feels like to be a victim of domestic violence,” Brown responded, emotion in her voice.
