By Oregon Campaign Watch,

• Voter turn out at 14% (425,000) as of May 17th.

• Congresswoman Val Hoyle has spent $17,000 in legal bills to defend herself from a constant stream of scandals and investigations.

• Noah Robinson, son of State Senator Art Robinson, has raised an impressive $138,000.  He is running against State Representative Christine Goodwin who has raised $213,000 to date.

• Democrats criticize $450,000 from Health Equity Now PAC (a PAC with undisclosed donors) that is funding independent ads for Jamie McLoed-Skinner (a very strong progressive).  McLoed-Skinner is running against State Representative Janelle Bynum in the Democrat Primary to challenge sitting incumbent Republican Congresswoman Lori Chavez-Deremer.

• A Moderate Democrat friendly PAC called Oregonians Are Ready PAC is investing big into Oregon House of Representative District #8 being vacated by State Representative Holvey. The PAC favors Lisa Fragala over Doyle Canning.
