U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici dominated the Democratic primary Tuesday for the 1st Congressional District.
The Oregon Democrat faced off against political newcomers Ricky Barajas, a dental office manager and student, and Michael Stansfield, a quality control engineer and author who works for a security company.
Bonamici amassed 92 percent of the vote, according to unofficial results. Stansfield totaled 4 percent and Barajas had 4 percent.
John Verbeek, a financial planner, was ahead of George Griffith, a mechanical design engineer, in the Republican primary to see who will face Bonamici in November. Preston Miller, an Army veteran studying at Portland State University, was a distant third.
Verbeek received 50 percent, Griffith 40 percent and Miller 8 percent.
The 1st Congressional District covers Clatsop, Columbia, Washington and Yamhill counties and a northwestern portion of Multnomah County. Republicans haven’t held the seat since 1974.
Bonamici, a consumer protection attorney, served four years in the state Legislature before being elected to Congress in 2012. She has raised more than $630,000 since the beginning of last year, according to the Federal Election Commission. Griffith was the only other candidate to report any contributions, totaling $817.
