Democrats spend big in Ore. special election
After David Wu sex scandal, Democrats spend big to keep seat in Oregon special election
By The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) ' Democrats and their allies have pumped more than $1 million into an Oregon special election race to replace former Rep. David Wu. Republicans have spent $85,000.

Wu is a Democrat who resigned last year after an 18-year-old woman accused him of making an unwanted sexual advance.

Voters in the Portland-area district have until Tuesday evening to return their ballots in the all-mail election.

Republican candidate Rob Cornilles (kohr-NIHL'-us) owns a sports marketing business and has pitched himself as a job creator. Former Democratic state Sen. Suzanne Bonamici (bahn-uh-MEECH'-ee) has emphasized their experience in the Legislature.

Democrats have represented the district since 1975. They are determined not to lose a friendly district because of a sex scandal, as they did with Anthony Weiner's New York district.
