GOP fighting to regain Hillsboro House seats

Richman - Mason

Republicans took the two Hillsboro Oregon House seats in 2010.

Republican Katie Eyre defeated Democrat Katie Riley 53.1% to 46.7% in HD 29 – which had an 8.8% Democratic voter registration advantage. Incumbent Rep. Chuck Riley (D) was not running again so that he could run against Republican Sen. Bruce Starr – a race Riley lost.

Republican Shawn Lindsay defeated Democrat Doug Ainge 53.3% to 46.5% in HD 30 – which had a 7.1% Democratic voter registration advantage. Incumbent Rep. David Edwards (D) did not run again so he could spend more time with his family.

Democrats retook both Hillsboro seats in 2012, riding on the re-election of President Obama. President Obama defeated Mitt Romney 54% to 42% in Oregon, and 57% to 40% in Washington County – where Hillsboro is the county seat.

Now Republicans are gearing up to retake the Hillsboro seats.

Washington County prosecutor Mark Richman is seeking the Republican nomination in HD 29. Rep. Ben Unger (D) is the current incumbent in HD 29 – which has a 7.8% Democratic voter registration advantage.

Republican Dan Mason is seeking the Republican nomination in HD 30. Rep. Joe Gallegos (D) is the current incumbent in HD 30 – which has a 6.7% Democratic voter registration advantage. Dan ran an excellent but unsuccessful race in 2012 against Rep. Chris Harker (D) in HD 34 – which had a 17.1% Democratic voter registration advantage. Dan remained a class act after the election, despite the classless behavior of his opponent.

    Let see how Washington County Republicans can take back both

    1. Rant about those undocumented workers, oh I forget you call
    tem illegal immigrants. That was a win winning strategy, driving more votes to the
    democrats. That’s really brilliant.

    2. Phone banking and more Phone banking: there is nothing
    like making 25 call on a sheet and only 4 answer and only one of the four positively.

    3. Campaign walks in single occupancy homes. Got to get out
    the vote by reaching those in single home per lot neighborhood; got to chase
    after that one or two voters and ignore
    hi density apartment, condo and town
    homes. When I was a volunteer I go to walk
    my rock creek neighborhood but my apartment complex was untouched. There was an
    exception of the republican leaving a note on my door in 2013.

    4. Talk about family and schools when a majority of us is single
    and rug rat free.

    Of course this is not a winning strategy except
    for the democrats who can sit and watch Washington County GOP shoot itself in
    the foot again. The GOP does not have to worry about me I am registered unaffiliated for republican.
