Wehby Wins Despite Personal Issues

Monica Wehby (R) handily defeated Jason Conger (R) in the Oregon Republican race for the U.S. Senate as she survived the personal controversy that dogged the last days of her primary race, the Oregonian reports.

In her victory speech, Wehby thanked Republican voters for seeing through "all the negativity" and said, "I do have a message for those national Democrats who were willing to shred my family for their own political gain: People are tired of your dirty tricks."

Roll Call: "Still, the opposition research on Wehby is already flying, and she will have to deal with some image issues straight out of the gate in a state already challenging for Republicans statewide."
