September 29, 2012 -- Democrat Eldon Rollins is blasting his incumbent rival for accepting donations from the pharmaceutical lobby.

Jeff Kruse (R-Roseburg) has accepted $22,000 from health care companies and advocacy groups in the lead-up to this year's election. Election records show that pharmaceutical companies have been consistent backers during his political career.

Kruse says he cares little about the source of his campaign donations. He does not handle those transactions directly.
