Topic - Oregon Republican Party

The Oregon Republican Party is the state affiliate of the national Republican Party in Oregon, headquartered in Tigard. The first state party convention was held in Salem on April 21, 1859, and its first nominee for Congress, Portland attorney David Logan, came within sixteen votes of being elected. It also selected delegates to the national nominating convention supporting William Seward, who had been outspoken in favor of Oregon's statehood, and was noted for his strong position against slavery. The Oregon Republican Party is currently chaired by former gubernatorial candidate Allen Alley. - Source: Wikipedia
