Oregon Primary Results

No surprises in yesterday's Oregon primary.

Senator Ron Wyden was easily renominated in the Democratic primary, receiving 91% of the vote. His Republican opponent will be Jim Huffman, a law professor, who got 42%, putting him well ahead of his opponents in a crowded Republican primary contest.

Apparently there is no poll more recent that a Rasmussen poll in February, with Wyden leading Huffman by 14 points.

The gubernatorial election will be between Democratic former Governor John Kitzhaber and Republican Chris Dudley. Kitzhaber trounced former Secretary of State Bill Bradbury, 66% to 30%, in the Democratic primary. Dudley got 40% in the Republican primary, to 32% for runner-up Allen Alley.

The most recent poll reported by Real Clear Politics shows Kitzhaber and Dudley tied.
