Oregon Official Who Fined Christian Bakery Owners $135K Loses Election Bid

Winning approximately 48 percent of the popular vote Republican Dennis Richardson, a state representative from Central Point, Oregon defeated Democrat Brad Avakian, the current Commissioner of Labor and Industries, marking the first time in 14 years that a Republican has won a statewide office in Oregon. His victory is considered an especially remarkable feat in that he is an outspoken social conservative in a liberal state.As noted by the Daily Caller¬†Monday, “Richardson pitched himself as a nonpartisan figure who would focus on the job’s traditional roles of monitoring elections and auditing public spending. Avakian, on the other hand, vowed to turn the office into a vehicle for progressive politics, saying he would use the post to fight climate change, promote abortion rights, investigate private companies, and champion certain candidates and political causes (despite the office’s electoral monitoring role).”
