Curry County Commissioner Court Boice (R) “is ‘kicking around the idea’ of vying for” Rep. Peter DeFazio’s (D) seat.
“He made a ‘quiet’ announcement … on social media and will make the decision to file in the next few weeks. … Boice, who had no political experience before he was elected to county commissioner last year, has played an active role in many issues in the county. Of note was his participation in the Chetco Bar Fire, traveling from his home in Agness to as far as Brookings to coordinate meetings and demand answers. … [F]ederal policy regarding fire management … was the driving force behind the idea to run for Congress.” (Curry Coastal Pilot)
Boice would face an uphill climb in defeating DeFazio, who is popular in the district.
