Weidner wins bid for re-election

State Rep. Jim Weidner has won a third term in House District 24, which covers all of Yamhill County and part of Washington county.

As of Wednesday morning, Weidner held 54.7 percent of the vote compared to 45.3 percent for challenger Kathy Campbell, a McMinnville businesswoman. Weidner had 10,415 votes and Campbell 8,610.

Of the more than 40,000 votes that were cast countywide, about 7,500 remained to be counted, many of them outside the district. That rules out chances of a reversal.

Weidner announced the initial results to a crowd at Mazatlan Mexican Restaurant, where he and county commissioner candidate Allen Springer were holding a joint election night party. That produced a round of cheers.

As a former resident of District 24 {was able to vote for him 2 years ago} which at least where I live ends at the McMinnville City Limits, I wish i had been able to vote for Mr. Weidner. Anyway I congratulate him, and hope he continues the awesome work down in Salem.
