Will Portland elect Oregon's first Native American lawmaker?

 


North Portland voters are about to choose their next democratic legislator for the hotly contested District 43. Their choice is between two highly qualified women of color – Tawna Sanchez, and Roberta Phillip-Roberts.

Sanchez is a social worker with deep roots in the community, and if she is the winner on Tuesday, she will become the first Native American in the Oregon legislature.
