(Worthy News) – Republican Lori Chavez-DeRemer flipped a long-held Democratic seat in Oregon, putting the GOP one step closer to a majority in the House of Representatives.
Chavez-DeRemer beat Democrat Jamie McLeod-Skinner in Oregon’s Fifth Congressional District by 2 points, the Associated Press reported Sunday. Chavez-DeRemer, a former mayor of Happy Valley, Ore., will be the first Republican woman to represent Oregon in the House. McLeod-Skinner, a radical leftist, had expressed support for the Green New Deal and Medicare for All.
“As mayor of Happy Valley, I was proud of my bipartisan track record, and it was critical to approach every issue through a non-partisan lens,” Chavez-DeRemer said in a statement. “That is exactly what I promise to do as your next Congresswoman. This is a historic victory for Oregon, but the work starts now.” [ Source: Washington Free Beacon (Read More…) ]
