OREGON, USA – The Associated Press has called the Democratic primary race for Oregon’s 5th Congressional District to Ashland High grad Jamie McCloud McLeod-Skinner.
CD-5 stretches from Clackamas to Deschutes Counties.
McLeod-Skinner, who was endorsed by Elizabeth Warren, beat seven-term Congressman Kurt Schrader in the primary despite Schrader getting an endorsement himself from President Biden.
McLeod-Skinner has held several positions in the Rogue Valley, most recently as interim city manager in Talent.
She lost her District 2 race to Cliff Bentz two years ago, but was reclassified into District 5 last year when legislators went through the redistricting process.
