Candidate Conversation: 1st Congressional District

Pete Springer/OPB

Oregonians in the First Congressional District will vote in a special election Jan. 31 to replace David Wu, who stepped down last August. Voters will choose between Democrat Suzanne Bonamici and Republican Rob Cornilles, who have both been campaigning hard in the short election cycle. Cornilles is a businessman with his own Tualitan-based sports marketing firm called Game Face. Bonamici, who has a background as a lawyer with the Federal Trade Commission, gave up her seat in the Oregon State Senate to run for Congress.

Do you live in the First Congressional District? What issues are most important to you? What would you like to ask the candidates?
