SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Republican gubernatorial candidate Knute Buehler, who lost the November election, says he's repurposing his campaign website to highlight issues that concern him, including improving the welfare of foster children.

Buehler, who is now officially out of politics since he didn't seek re-election to the Oregon House of Representatives in order to campaign for the governorship, said in a video message on Monday that he wants to highlight state budget and health care issues, and bring civility to politics.

Buehler, an orthopedic surgeon from the Central Oregon town of Bend, received roughly 815,000 votes compared to incumbent Democratic Gov. Kate Brown's 934,500.
