MEDFORD, Ore. — While seats were won and lost in both the U.S. Senate and House, the overall result remained the same. The House is still a Republican majority, and the Senate remains under Democratic control.
Here in Oregon, U.S. Congressman Greg Walden defeated Joyce Segers, to win his eighth term in the House, where he is expected to play a major role. He says he wants Republicans and democrats to work together to improve the country’s financial situation.
“We need to get together and resolve this nation’s problems once and for all. They’re big, we have time to fix them, but we don’t have a lot of time,” stated Rep. Greg Walden. Walden was first elected to Congress in 1999.
Oregon Congressman Peter DeFazio is once again getting the support of Oregonians, with 58% of the vote. The challenger, Art Robinson, received 40% of the vote. This is the second time Robinson has challenged DeFazio.
