Rep. Lori Chavez-DeRemer

Congresswoman Lori Chavez-DeRemer’s
 2022 victory was the first blue-to-red flip in Oregon since 1994. Since her election, she has focused on her district’s agriculture and transportation needs, as well as education issues. Chavez-DeRemer played a key role in passing a Parents’ Bill of Rights and challenged higher education leaders to stand up to campus antisemitism.

It will not be easy for Chavez-DeRemer to win a second term. In her district, Biden beat Trump by almost 9 percent. Her likeliest Democrat opponent is the same person she defeated in 2022: J Street-endorsed progressive firebrand Jamie McLeod-Skinner. The contrast between the pragmatic and practical Republican and the Democrat backed by the hard left Working Families Party could not be clearer.
