-State Representative, 54th District (Bend)
- Democrat Jason Kropf, the only candidate on the Democratic ticket, gained 9,800 votes in the Democratic primary. His opponent in November, incumbent Republican Cheri Helt, who also ran in the primary unopposed, took home far fewer votes in her primary, with 5,458. That should be an interesting race to watch in November.

State Representative 53rd District
In the Redmond-area House race, unchallenged incumbent Republican Jack Zika took 8,980 votes in the Republican primary, while unchallenged Democratic primary candidate Emerson Levy took 7,417 votes.

State Senator, 27th District
The race for Bend's state senate race will be an interesting one in November, too; unopposed candidate, Democrat Eileen Kiely, brought in 17,504 votes in the Democratic primary, while incumbent Tim Knopp, the Republican who also ran unopposed, took in 15,114 votes. The two will now square off in the November general election.
