Northwest Congressional Seats

With Karl Rove targeting Congressman Kurt Schrader, and David Wu’s very public mental health troubles, at least two of the region’s congressional districts are in the national spotlight. How are these races shaping up in advance of the 2012 primary season?

What races are you most interested in? Do you live in Wu’s or Schrader’s districts? What do you think about the jobs they’re doing? Have you contributed to a campaign at this early stage? Why or why not?

UPDATE, JULY 24, 2011:

According to The Oregonian, Congressman Wu has been accused by a young woman of an “unwanted, aggressive sexual encounter,” and is now facing increasing pressure from party leaders and primary opponents. We’ll bring you the latest tomorrow.
