Oregon redistricting lines are drawn

The Oregon Legislature has approved its redistricting maps, which now go on to Governor Kate Brown for her signature. You know what this means: the lines in the coming battle for control of both Congress and the Oregon Legislature are set.

Here's the big news: The new Sixth District is a competitive one — and we know that Republicans are coming as hard as they can for our progressive champion Peter DeFazio.

These two fights will matter to every Democrat across the country; control of the House of Representatives hangs in the balance.

Please chip in $3 and supercharge our organizing efforts in the lead-up to 2022.

The brand-new wide-open Sixth District is the Republicans' biggest opportunity in Oregon in a long time.

But, where Republicans see opportunity, so does Team Merkley. And that's where you come in.

Our approach? Organize, organize, and organize some more. Because, in this post-Citizens United world, we can be sure that Republicans and their deep-pocketed donors are going to do everything they can to carve out any part of Oregon they can get.

A coordinated Democratic effort is absolutely critical right now — to ensure that we elect a great Democratic leader to our new 6th Congressional District, and defend DeFazio with all we've got.

This week is our big FEC fundraising deadline. Please make a grassroots donation before and stand with Jeff as we build an unstoppable Oregon organizing effort.
