Democrat Ron Wyden is favored to win a fifth term in November.
Democratic Gov. Kate Brown is term-limited. Both parties have massive primary fields: 19 Republicans and 15 Democrats are vying for the nomination. The Democratic race appears to be between former State House Speaker Tina Kotek and State Treasurer Tobias Read. The GOP contest seems more wide open.
These primaries will be conducted using redistricted congressional boundaries. The state gained a district after the 2020 Census.
