Republican Lori Chavez-DeRemer flipped Oregon’s 5th District seat red.

Democrat Kurt Schrader represented Oregon’s 5th Congressional District for 7 terms before losing his primary to Democrat Jamie McLeod Skinner.

Via Wikipedia:

Oregon’s 5th congressional district represents Oregon’s central coast through Salem, north to the southern Portland suburbs (including a sliver of Portland itself), and east to the summit of Mount Hood. It includes Lincoln, Marion, and Polk counties, most of Clackamas and Tillamook counties, plus parts of Benton and Multnomah counties.

Lori Chavez-DeRemer led her opponent 50.9% to 48.8% as of Friday morning.

Lori Chavez-DeRemer is Oregon’s first Hispanic and GOP Congresswoman.

Oregon Live reported:

Republicans have flipped Oregon’s pivotal 5th District seat in Congress, with Republican Lori Chavez-DeRemer defeating Democrat Jamie McLeod-Skinner in a race flooded with out-of-state GOP spending.

That means Republicans will at least double their number of Oregon’s seats in the U.S. House, with Chavez-DeRemer, the former mayor of Happy Valley, joining Republican Cliff Bentz, who represents the heavily Republican 2nd District that covers most of eastern Oregon.

Near-final results tallied as of 9:30 a.m. Friday showed Chavez-DeRemer ahead 50.9% to 48.8%. That put her margin of victory at just over 4,000 votes out of nearly 240,000 cast.

Chavez-DeRemer will replace Democratic Rep. Kurt Schrader, a seven-term incumbent ousted by McLeod-Skinner in the May primary. Chavez-DeRemer’s victory is a boon for Oregon Republicans and could boost House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s still-uncertain bid to take control of the U.S. House of Representatives.
