The Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) named two Oregon Republican legislative candidates to their 18 Races to Watch in 2018 list. Jessica Gomez in Senate District 3 and Lori Chavez-DeRemer in House District 51 received this national recognition.

 “We applaud this well-deserved national recognition for two candidates who represent the very best of the Oregon GOP,” stated Oregon GOP spokesman Kevin Hoar. “This is not only a acknowledgment of the quality of both Jessica and Lori as candidates, but also highlights these races as hot opportunities for victory in November.”

Jessica Gomez made this statement:

“I believe Southern Oregon has infinite potential. I’m proud to represent our region and its values of family, community and hard work.”

Lori Chavez-DeRemer released the following quote after being chosen for the list:

“I want to thank the RSLC for including me on their list of Races to Watch in 2018. I’ve always been in support of electing more diverse and young Republicans to office that can offer innovative ideas to the party platform. As the first ever Latina and female Mayor of Happy Valley, my hope has been to inspire other young women that they can also run for office. I am humbled by their support and the accolade is indicative to the momentum our campaign is seeing this year. All eyes are on our race as House District 51 becomes the last stand of a Democratic House Supermajority in Oregon.”
