It is in Oregon's 1st district (the one being vacated by David "tiger suit" Wu) I don't have a link for results, but I will post one if I can find it.

I doubt any Republican could ever win that district. Portland is solid moonbats.

It actually only has a small amount of Portland since most of Portland is in the 3rd and 5th districts. It definitely leans democratic but is mostly centered around Washington County west of Portland.

Haha, right. And the democrats POURED money into the race just in case.

RealClearPolitics - Politics - Jan 29, 2012 - Democrats spend big in Oregon special election

Quote:
Democrats have represented the district since 1975, and its voters overwhelmingly supported Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential race.

But Democrats do not want to see a repeat of what happened last year in a heavily Democratic New York City district, when a Republican won a special election after Rep.

Political committees for a union, abortion-rights groups and a super political action committee allied with Democrats have also chipped in with their own mail or television ads.
DCCC spent $1.3 to keep the seat.

Wow. They must have been extremely worried to spend that kind of money...in a district that has been true blue for decades.
