Time Running Out for GOP to Play in Oregon Special

BEAVERTON, Ore. — Several thousand miles away from Des Moines, Iowa, and 3,000 from Manchester, N.H., Democrats and Republicans are battling for attention in the first general election contest of 2012.

Ballots go out in Oregon’s 1st district at the end of next week, yet a volunteer at the Rob Cornilles for Congress phone bank last week still had to explain that ex-Rep. David Wu (D) would not be one of the candidates. Instead, Cornilles (R) and Democrat Suzanne Bonamici are running to replace Wu, who resigned his seat last year. The vote-by-mail election is scheduled for Jan. 31.

Oregonians have been distracted by the holidays and the University of Oregon Ducks’ Rose Bowl victory, so voters have yet to focus on the race. But because elections in the Beaver State are conducted entirely by mail and ballots will be distributed Jan. 13, party strategists have little time to make their final decisions.
