Beyer, Barnhart Are Both Winners


Byline: TIM CHRISTIE The Register-Guard

In a battle of redistricted incumbents, Rep. Phil Barnhart defeated Rep. Al King in Tuesday's Democratic primary for the District 11 House seat.

In District 12, Elizabeth Terry Beyer beat Rick Henson in the Democratic primary to get one step closer to winning a term to the House seat she was appointed to last November. Beyer had 56 percent of the vote to Henson's 44 percent in late returns.

The results show Oregon voters want lawmakers to "solve the problem of Measure 5," a property tax relief measure that took $1 billion out of state budgets, and to figure out a way to pay for education and health care.

King said he was disappointed and said his candidacy was hurt by direct mail "hit pieces" sent by Barnhart's campaign. "I think they made a big difference in the race, and that's not my style," he said. "I'm disappointed but life goes on."

In the November general election, Barnhart will face political newcomer Robert Bolanos of Creswell, who was unopposed in the Republican primary. …
