Oregon Politics

In the 2004 elections, Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden will seek a second full-term in his bid for re-election. Al King, a Republican rancher, will face Wyden, a popular Democrat who has held the Senate post since a special election in 1996 to replace disgraced Sen. Bob Packwood.

In House races, Republican Goli Ameri, an Iranian-American, will challenge 1st district incumbent Rep. David Wu. The Democrat is running for a fourth term in Congress and remains the favorite in November.

In the May state elections and primaries, Maria Rojo de Steffey, a Multonomah County commissioner who helped clear the way for gay nuptials there, won re-election. Lisa Naito, another commissioner involved in the secret decision, will face a run-off in the fall.

The supporters of same-sex marriage could still face a recall effort by opponents of gay marriage. More than 3,000 same-sex couples tied the knot before April 20, when a judge halted the weddings. The matter is likely to end up before the state Supreme Court.

In the nonpartisan Portland mayor's race, Jim Francesconi and Tom Potter bested 20 other candidates for the chance to replace Vera Katz, who is resigning after three terms in office. Potter, a former Portland police chief, and Francesconi will meet in a run-off in November.

In the 2002 elections, Republican Gordon Smith, the frozen-food tycoon seeking a second term, won the Senate seat easily after raising four times as much money as Democrat Bill Bradbury.

In the race for governor, veteran state officeholder Kulongoski, and former Republican lawmaker Kevin Mannix locked in a surprisingly close contest to replace Democrat John Kitzhaber. Kulongoski won.

In the House races, all incumbents won.
