    Washington County is also seeing tremendous growth in minority populations. It is home to not just minority groups, but immigrants as well, having more recent African immigrants than traditional African Americans. In 2010 Beaverton was 73% white, 2.6% black, 10.5% Asian, 8% "other", and over 16% Hispanic or Latino of any race. Hillsboro was 73% white, 2% black, 9% Asian, 10% "other", and 22% Hispanic or Latino. Cornelius was 64% white, 50.1% Hispanic or Latino of any race. Other communities look more like the rest of Oregon. Tigard was 80% white in 2010, 7% Asian, 6% "other", and a little under than 13% Hispanic. Tualatin was 80% white, 3.5% Asian, 9% "other", and 17% Hispanic or Latino. North Plains was 89% white, 11% Hispanic or Latino of any race.
    As long as this trend continues, Bonamici shouldn't be in any real danger going forward... And Oregon should remain reliably Blue. I can't wait to read your next report.
    •  Defazio has the district I'd worry about most (1+ / 0-)

      Schrader is still young and too moderate to run statewide, but DeFazio has been around a while and much of Southern Oregon is trending the wrong way or stagnant (although there's still Eugene).

      Socially libertarian, moderate on foreign policy, immigration, and crime, liberal on everything else.
