Chavez-DeRemer, the Second-Most Bipartisan Member of Congress, Issues Statement Following Primary Election Victory

HAPPY VALLEY, Oregon – Rep. Lori Chavez-DeRemer (OR-05), who had the

second-most bipartisan voting record in Congress last year according to a Roll Call

analysis, released the following statement kicking off the general election.

“From my decades of experience in local government, I know effective leadership

requires putting in the work on the ground. I’ve crisscrossed the 5th District listening to constituents, bringing feedback with me directly to D.C. and taking action. Families are understandably concerned with high living expenses and want to feel safer in their communities. As an independent voice for Oregon, I've worked across the aisle to lower costs, tackle the fentanyl crisis, and reduce crime. I'm honored to have such a strong coalition of support from Oregonians of all backgrounds – Republicans, Democrats, and Independents – and I'll continue fighting tirelessly to grow our movement so we can keep building a better Oregon by advancing commonsense solutions,” Chavez-DeRemer said.

Chavez-DeRemer has dominated fundraising in the 5th District, currently enjoying

nearly $2 million cash on hand. She is endorsed by nearly a dozen labor unions, most

recently announcing the support of Teamsters Joint Council No. 37. Additionally,

Chavez-DeRemer is supported by over 40 Republican, Democrat, and Independent

leaders throughout Oregon, and she has received key endorsements from the Oregon Coalition of Police & Sheriffs, the Oregon Farm Bureau, AG-PAC, and AIPAC.

In Congress, Chavez-DeRemer has racked up a number of bipartisan accomplishments.

She successfully passed several bills through the House that received widespread

support, including legislation to reduce homelessness among veterans, save taxpayer

dollars, and support health care workers who treat substance use and behavioral health disorders. A recent analysis of bill sponsorships by Georgetown University’s Lugar Center listed Chavez-DeRemer as the most bipartisan member of the Oregon

congressional delegation.
