    Its PVI is D+0. That makes it Oregon's 2nd most conservative district (out of 5). But it's historically Democratic though; back when De Fazio was elected (1986) and even through most of the 90s, it was probably Oregon's 2nd most liberal district... it's a question of Portland's suburbs trending blue, while the rural parts of the 4th are trending red. Eugene is still the focal point of the district, so I'd expect it would still be able to return another Dem to the House (Pete Sorenson comes to mind). But it wouldn't be a cakewalk.
