A business outlook on 2014 Primary candidates

Two things.  First, would State Senator Betsy Johnson (D-Scappoose) face a primary challenge from the left? On some very key business, management, and environmental issues, Senator Johnson has joined with Republicans to block measures harmful to Oregon’s business community. With a slim 16-14 Democratic majority in the Senate, Senator Johnson’s vote is often the deciding vote. Many liberal groups have expressed frustration with Senator Johnson, but on filing day, no one emerged to challenge her on the Democratic ticket.

Second, would there be any unexpected legislators opting against running for re-election? There was only one – freshman Representative Ben Unger (D-Hillsboro) unexpectedly dropped out, creating an open seat in House District 29 (Hillsboro, Forest Grove). Other than Representative Unger, there were 14 retirements in the Oregon House (none in the Oregon Senate). None of the 14 retirements in the House are in particularly competitive swing districts.

Did any incumbents pick up a primary challenger?
