On Tuesday, January 31st, Floridians will be heading to the polling booths to vote in the
Presidential primaries for their state. But there is another election on Tuesday, and it’s on the other side of the continent.
Oregonians will be participating in a special election to fill the vacant seat for the state’s 1st Congressional, formerly held by Democrat David Wu.
The candidates are Democratic State Sen. Suzanne Bonamici and Republican Rob Cornilles.
A recent Moore Information poll showed Cornilles at 42%, with Bonamici holding a 4 point lead at 46%.
