That’s the race between Republican Rob Cornilles and Democrat Suzanne Bonamici to replace the disgraced (and resigned) Democrat David Wu. It’s mail-in, but they’re going to be reporting the results tonight as the votes are tabulated: and I don’t know who is going to win. The district has a hefty Democratic lean, and it’s reflected in the percentage of ballots that have come back, so if the ballots break down along party lines Bonamici will win. The question is, how many Democratic voters are willing to overlook the aforementioned resignation in disgrace?
No, it’s a valid question: the American electorate tends to punish politicians for sex scandals; and if they can’t punish the politician they’ll punish his party. Anybody’s guess about whether that will happen tonight, of course.
