Voters in Oregon will elect representatives for five House seats, four of which are held by Democrats and one by a Republican. They will also choose a governor, an office currently held by a Democrat. See Oregon’s primary results.
Gov. Kate Brown (D) is running for her first full term; she assumed office and then won a special election after John Kitzhaber resigned in February 2015. She faces state Rep.
