WASHINGTON — Oregon Democrats just successfully defended their majority in the Senate. Republicans named Oregon as one of their targets to flip this cycle, pumping nearly $10 million into the state. Despite the onslaught of funding from the RSLC and powerful billionaires, the DLCC remained committed to defending the Senate majority in Oregon, working tirelessly with our state partners to defend this critical chamber.
“Even with an onslaught of RSLC dark money and MAGA millions pouring into the state, Democrats have defended their majority in the Oregon Senate,” said DLCC President Jessica Post. “While the MAGA GOP stands for climate inaction and attacks on personal freedom, Democrats are focused on protecting abortion and creating a safer, more affordable future for Oregon.”
When Oregon became at risk, the DLCC mobilized to defend the legislature and invested over $1.5 million in the state, helping state partners lay the groundwork for strong campaigns. Oregon Republicans have worked to block climate legislation, underfund public education, and restrict reproductive freedom instead of focusing on the issues that matter to Oregon communities.
The DLCC is the official Democratic Party committee dedicated to winning America’s state legislatures. This cycle, the committee raised $50 million to elect state Democrats across the country. State legislatures are the building blocks of our democracy and pass the policies that have the biggest impact on Americans’ day-to-day lives.
