Over the course of several decades, the Democratic Party has maintained a commanding majority in Oregon’s congressional delegation. The Republicans in Oregon, however, give off the impression that they are more confident than they have ever been in their ability to level the playing field.
“It has been around half a century since Oregon had anything resembling a divided delegation. It’s been going around in our Senate. However, it has not been brought up in any of our House seats. The results have been very strongly Democratic “Dr. Jim Moore, a political analyst, was quoted as saying.

At the present time, both of Oregon’s congressional districts 1 and 3 are held by Democrats, whereas district 2 is occupied by the state’s lone Republican congressman. In the midterm elections of 2022, all three will be seeking reelection to their respective seats.
The Republican Party, on the other hand, is mobilizing in an effort to take back control of the following three districts:
- Democrat Peter DeFazio is retiring from Oregon’s congressional district 4
- Democrat Kurt Schrader lost his primary race in May for Oregon’s congressional district 5
- Oregon’s new congressional district 6, formed from a population boom in the state, recorded in the 2020 census
The attention of the entire nation is currently concentrated on these upcoming races.
Moore stated that Democrats are most concerned that their own voters would not show up or that their own voters will be on the fence about voting for them.
“The fact that there are a much lower number of Republicans in Oregon compared to the number of Democrats is a source of concern for the state’s conservatives. They can convince each and every Republican voter to cast their ballot, but they will still come out on the losing end in all of our districts with the exception of one.”

According to the data provided by the Secretary of State’s office as of the month of October 2022, there are a total of 1,013,268 registered Democrats and 730,986 registered Republicans.
According to Moore, the 1,032,326 voters in Oregon who are not affiliated with either the Democratic Party or the Republican Party will be the group with the most influence on the composition of the Congressional delegation in 2022. This group outnumbers the number of people who are registered as either Democrats or Republicans.
