While most eyes are on the race for the White House, a tight House race in Oregon is also grabbing some attention.

The state’s first congressional district has been without a representative since Democrat David Wu resigned last summer over repeated bizarre behavior.

The district trends Democratic but recent polls show Republican Rob Cornilles surprisingly close to Democratic nominee Suzanne Bonamici.

“As a small-business owner … I have simply felt our interests have not been represented … and our economic situation in Oregon is not getting much better.”

Cornilles explains to WND what issue is paramount in this race and where he and Bonamici differ most strongly.

“She advocates for continued taxes on small businesses. She has not been friendly to small business.”

He also tells us why Obamacare is a major issue in the contest and how Oregon’s mail-in balloting system impacts the race.
