EUGENE, Ore. –One of the races watched closely Tuesday night was between incumbent U.S. Representative Peter DeFazio (D) and challenger Art Robinson (R).
DeFazio will serve as Oregon’s District Four Representative for a 14th term. He took almost 81,000 of the votes to Art Robinson’s 38,000, about 35 percent more than his competitor.
DeFazio says he looks forward to making this next congressional session more productive that the last.
“Let’s pass my bill to reform the postal service not kill it, lets talk about asking the wealthiest among us, and the big cooperations to pay their fair share to begin to deal with the deficit. Let’s look at a whole host of problems confronting this country and stop playing politics,” said Rep. Peter DeFazio (D).
As for the presidential race, DeFazio is excited to see President Obama re-elected, something he believes will help the productive 113th congressional session he’s looking forward to.
