My name is Travis Oler, and I am a candidate for the US Senate representing Idaho. I am certainly not the typical lawyer, career politician, or millionaire US Senate candidate.
I am a 48-year-old US Army veteran, family farm manager, and businessman, and I was raised on a potato farm in Idaho.
I currently split my time between managing the family farm in Shelley, Idaho, and running my Internet marketing business.
I have been a member of the middle class nearly my entire life, and I am campaigning for Senator primarily to help Idaho's struggling middle class.
I would like to invite you to donate to my campaign and to volunteer!
I am not going to run a boring, artificial campaign that puts the people of Idaho to sleep.
In fact, I have specific campaign initiatives that contributors can sponsor directly. My intention is to allow substantial input from the public regarding which campaign ideas to fast track and which campaign ideas I should bury.
Having been in small business for over 12 years, I believe in the free market, and I believe that my campaign will be better if I allow contributors to donate directly to specific initiatives.
Please consider donating towards these specific campaign initiatives by clicking on the links below--
Family farmers need to visibly and peacefully demonstrate their strong opposition to Trump's disastrous policies.
Donald Trump's policies are combining to create a tsunami wave threatening to swamp family farms throughout Idaho and the United States.
The US is having its worst farm crisis since the 1980s, with farm profits cut almost in half since in 2018 compared to 2011. Farm debt is rising as farmers need to mortgage the farm.
Travis will stand up to Trump's disastrous farm policies and attend US Senate Agriculture Committee hearings in Washington DC.
None of Idaho’s four Congressmen sit on the Agricultural Committee in either the House or the Senate. If none of Idaho’s four members of the House or Senate are interested in representing Idaho and Idaho’s farmers in front of the agricultural committees, then Travis will do it personally.
Iowa has TWO senators who are members of the US Senate Agriculture Committee, and Idaho has none, zero, nada, zilch, zippo—you get the picture.
Republican Senator Grassley from Iowa said that the Trump administration has "screwed" farmers, but Idaho senators Risch and Crapo are too scared of Trump to fight for Idaho farm families.
Please donate towards a campaign trip so that Travis can visit all 44 counties in Idaho.
Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke visited 254 counties in Texas, and luckily Idaho has 210 fewer counties!
The rural vote in Idaho is crucial for a successful campaign, and with Travis's rural Idaho roots and this campaign trip, rural voters will be able to see the need to send Travis to Washington DC to fight against Republican policies that have been disastrous for the middle class and farm families in Idaho and throughout the United States.
Cecil Andrus served for 14 years as the Democratic governor of the state of Idaho, and he passed away in 2017.
Travis would like to build a Cecil Andrus memorial located near the newly re-named Cecil D. Andrus-White Clouds Wilderness.
On March 22, 2018, my opponent, career politician Jim Risch threatened for hours to single-handedly shut down the government of the United States. In a partisan temper tantrum due to to a 30-year-old political grudge, Risch objected to naming a wilderness area in Idaho after Cecil Andrus.
Please donate towards this memorial so that the people of Idaho can be reminded of the many accomplishments of their 4-term Democratic governor.
Travis Oler is a 48-year-old US Army veteran, family farm manager, and businessman. He is from the 5th generation of an Idaho farm family.
Please donate towards a Reality TV-style series of campaign videos and shows that will record the progress of Travis's campaign to bring accountability back to Washington DC.
Tentatively called "Farm 2 Senate", this Reality TV Show will produce episodes highlighting Travis's farming and campaign activities.
Will Farm 2 Senate actually get made? It depends on you! You will decide through your donations.
