Hispanic Caucus Books Ad Space In Oregon State House Race!

The Congressional Hispanic Caucus campaign arm revealed on Monday that it will purchase airtime to promote Democratic candidate Andrea Salinas in the House contest in Oregon’s newest district.

After a costly contest in which the Hispanic caucus’ political arm, Bold PAC, defeated an alliance between Democratic leadership and a bitcoin super PAC, the group has made Salinas’s election a top objective.

Andrea Salinas has the backing of the CHC Bold PAC. Salinas has a long and established history of defending the environment, access to affordable healthcare, and reproductive rights. According to Rep. Tony CΓ‘rdenas (D-Calif.), a former Bold PAC chairman, “it’s why she won her competitive primary and why voters will determine she is the proper candidate to represent them in Congress come November.”

After the 2020 Census, a new district will be created, and Salinas is expected to win.

But despite the Pacific Northwest’s expanding and typically affluent Latino population, the district with a 20 percent Hispanic population offers Hispanic Democrats a beachside in Congress. There are presently two Democratic Latina candidates running for House seats in the area.

In neighboring Washington, where Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R) lost her primary, Marie Gluesenkamp Perez is running for the state’s 3rd district against Salinas, who is now an Oregon state representative.

In an Oregon district, that is closer by and more competitive, a Republican Latina is running.

In the general election, Rep. Kurt Schrader’s opponent, Democrat Jamie McLeod-Skinner, will square off against Republican Lori Chavez-DeRemer.

Republican Mike Erickson, who has mostly supported himself out of his own pocket and has maintained his campaign despite his party generally ignoring the area, is Salinas’ opponent. Democrats aren’t taking any chances as they have a rare chance to win upvotes.

In addition to the six-figure expenditure made by Bold PAC, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee spent $3.5 million last month on advertising in the Portland region, supporting Salinas and McLeod-Skinner among others.
