Vote 2020: U.S. House, Senate and Presidential race results 

Race results for Oregon's Congressional District 2 race, Oregon's U.S. Senate race and more updated here

For decades, people living in Oregon's 2nd Congressional District have had the same man represent them in Congress. This year, Rep. Greg Walden announced he was not running again, opening the door for two candidates to go head-to-head, without the status of an incumbency helping one candidate tip the scales for the "known quantity."

Democrat Alex Spenser and Republican Cliff Bentz were both hoping to win the seat today.

Here are the results for Oregon's U.S. Senate race, Oregon's House 2 race, and a little about what we know about the U.S. presidential race.

Oregon's Congressional District 2

Republican Cliff Bentz is headed to Congress to represent Oregon's Congressional District 2, which represents Bend and all of eastern Oregon, as well as Medford. The Oregonian called the race for Bentz Tuesday night. As of 8:31am Thursday morning, Bentz won 60.03% to Alex Spenser's 36.81%. (In Deschutes County, Spenser pulled in 45.94% of the vote.)

Oregon U.S. Senator

Democrat Jeff Merkley is the clear winner in the race. The Associated Press called the race soon after the polls closed in Oregon Tuesday night, The New York Times reported. As of 8:31am Thursday morning, Merkley was ahead 57.67% to Republican Joe Rae Perkins 38.8%, according to the Oregon Secretary of State.

U.S. President/Vice President

As much as Americans want to see this race decided, the unprecedented nature of the 2020 election is proving to be a major hurdle to calling the presidential election on Tuesday night. Stay tuned on this one, Americans...
