Dems, GOP keep close eye on secretary of state race


PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Republicans and Democrats are keeping a close eye on the secretary of state’s race in the Tuesday election. It might be the GOP’s chance for winning its first statewide race in more than a decade.

Polls have indicated it could be a close race Tuesday between Republican Dennis Richardson and Democrat Brad Avakian.

Polls have also indicated Democratic Gov. Kate Brown has no reason to worry about the challenge from her Republican opponent, Bud Pierce.

No Republican has won a statewide race in Oregon since then-U.S. Sen. Gordon Smith was re-elected in 2002.

Oregonians on Tuesday were also voting for treasurer, attorney general, and candidates for federal races.
