Buehler was the unsuccessful Republican Party nominee for Oregon Secretary of State in 2012, losing to incumbent Secretary of State Democrat Kate Brown.

State representative

Buehler won election to the Oregon House of Representatives in 2014, defeating Democrat Craig Wilhelm. While Buehler describes himself as a moderate, Knute's inconsistent stance concerning abortions has garnered criticism across the political spectrum. In July 2016, Buehler received a 65% rating from the American Conservative Union, although by November of that year it had dropped to 58%.

Ethics violations

The Democratic Party of Oregon Chair filed three ethics complaints against Buehler in the spring of 2017 regarding his campaign finance disclosures for the last four years. Two claims were dismissed by a state ethics committee, while Knute avoided thousands of dollars in fines by acknowledging his violation of an Oregon statue in the third complaint as part of a state-mandated Letter of Education, along with restating his finance declarations retroactively to 2013. Buehler said the censure was "politically motivated," while the original filers noted that "he continues to hide income."

Gubernatorial campaign

On August 3, 2017, Buehler announced he would run for Governor of Oregon in the 2018 election.
