Shown with husband Rex Newby at Philomath Gun Shop, Susan shows off her new Stag Arms AR-15.

The Benton County Republicans conducted a raffle for a Stag Arms AR-15 firearm beginning July 31, 2013, opening day of the Benton County Fair, through November 21, 2013. The drawing was held at the Benton County Republican "We the People" Appreciation Dinner. After a flurry of ticket purchases that ran out the clock to the moment of the drawing, Chairman Jerry Jackson selected a member of the audience to draw the winning ticket. The winner was Susan Newby of Corvallis! We offer our congratulations to Susan and a big 'thank you' to all who purchased raffle tickets! We also thank the folks at Philomath Gun Shop for their advice and discount and those who participated in ticket sales. Special thanks to Andrew Decker, who set up the raffle according to all the rules, regulations and permissions required by law.
