The U.S. House race in Oregon's newly created 6th Congressional District is closer than pollsters expected. The district includes the state capital Salem and Portland’s affluent southwestern suburbs along with rural areas. There are more registered Democrats than Republicans, but most voters are nonaffiliated. (Beth Nakamura/The Oregonian via AP)
