The latest in Oregon
On Sept. 27, Oregon became the first state to redraw its congressional map for the next decade, enacting a plan that creates four Democratic districts, a safe Republican district and one potential battleground district.
Arguably the biggest winner under the approved proposal is Democratic Rep. Peter DeFazio, whose seat went from R+1 to D+9. The new map also keeps Democratic Rep. Kurt Schrader’s home in the 5th District — which is a competitive seat with a partisan lean of D+3. (However, he could also choose to run in the state’s new 6th District, which leans more Democratic and contains half of his current district.)
Oregon’s redistricting process was contentious because Democrats cut off negotiations with Republicans, and they first tried to pass an even more favorable map that would’ve created five Democratic-leaning seats and just one Republican-leaning seat. But state House Republicans boycotted a floor session in retaliation, forcing Democrats to redraw the map to be slightly fairer. On Sept. 27, House Republicans returned to the state Capitol, providing the quorum necessary for Democrats to pass the map. Democratic Gov. Kate Brown signed the bill into law late that same night.
