Five Oregon Democrats are vying for the chance to unseat Rep. Greg Walden (R-Hood River) in Oregon's District 2. With Walden facing wrath for helping craft the attempted repeal of the Affordable Care Act, Dems are hoping to ride the wave to victory—convincing moderate Republicans, those non-affiliated and Independents to cross over. Still, voters chose Walden in all 20 of his counties in 2016.

Democratic candidates met Nov. 13 in a forum hosted by Indivisible Bend and the Vocal Seniority. Six contenders gave way to five when Ross Wordhouse, a local entrepreneur, announced he was pulling out of the race.

Here are the contenders aiming for the Democratic spot in the May 2018 primary.
