Really sad news out of Salem tonight. Dr. Selma Pierce, a community leader, dentist and mother, has died in a car accident. The news comes one day after her husband, Bud Pierce, announced he would run for governor in 2022. #orpol #orleg https://t.co/sZJZEbyJAf

Wonderful people, both of them. It’s utterly devastating. A terrible loss for Dr Pierce and for our entire community and state. Selma was the embodiment of a “compassionate conservative”, and I admire her very much. She will be so missed.

So tragic. I met & came to respect Dr. Pierce when covering her husband’s gubernatorial run. Beyond being nice as can be, we were once on a tiny jet to a campaign stop & a crash seemed imminent (it’s a long story) but Selma had nerves of steel & impressively never showed any fear.
