Previewing Oregon's 1st District Special Primary Election

November 7, 2011
Republican Primary Republicans got the strongest possible candidate they could here when Cornilles, a sports management consultant who ran against Wu last year, decided to jump back into the race. While he's still in a five-way GOP primary on Tuesday, he's expected to cruise to victory and has been able to conserve most of his cash -- a hefty $500,000 haul in the 3rd quarter -- for the anticipated January race with Bonamici. Cornilles has also been on the air, releasing an ad showing him jogging through the district, boasting of his business background and independence. The ad bore a striking similarity to one neighboring Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., ran the state's last congressional special election in 1996 - and the Democratic congressman even paid to put the original spot back on the air to mock Cornilles. Mail-in Vote Voters have actually had ballots in their hands for the past three weeks, thanks to the state's all mail elections. Oregon has also been introducing the use of the iPad to make it easier for disabled voters to vote. Ballots have to be received at county election offices or drop boxes by 8 p.m. Pacific Time on Tuesday. Even with the mail-in vote, turnout is still expected to be low, at about 28 percent so far. The Portland Oregonian notes there's typically a surge of ballots returned on Election Day, but participation is still expected to fall below 50 percent.
