DeFazio Opponent Only Challenger With Money
Most of Oregon's congressional races this year are shaping up as lopsided affairs, with only one of the five incumbents so far facing a well-funded challenger.
Campaign finance reports submitted over the weekend show that
Republican Art Robinson is the only challenger to raise much money.
He again tapped a national fundraising network that helped him
spook Democratic incumbent Peter DeFazio in 2010.
The latest campaign finance reports show Robinson raised
$370,000 through the end of March, and he had just over $170,000
left to spend. DeFazio had raised $600,000, with $530,000 left in
Two Republicans challenging Democrat Kurt Schrader in Oregon's
most competitive district reported raising less than $10,000
between them. Schrader has raised almost $2 million, with half it
still in the bank.
