Oregon: Contests to Watch. In Oregon, a left-leaning state, Republicans are mounting a big challenge in the race for governor and key congressional races, including two where Latino voters could send the first Latina to Congress. Oregon has a ballot measure to watch: it’s a permit-to-purchase gun law, one of the strictest in the nation.
