Ally Orr poses for a portrait at Orr's residence in Battle Ground. Her shirt, which she created herself, shares a campaign motto of "I stand with medicated, meddlesome and quarrelsome women." The slogan is a response to a Boise State professor's statement at a National Conservatism Conference in 2021 where he used the three adjectives to describe independent women.
