JET alum Rob Cornilles, a sports business consultant, has won the Republican primary for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives representing the Portland-area district.  The primary was part of a special election being held in the wake of the resignation of David Wu (D-Oregon) who resigned earlier this year due to allegations of sexually inappropriate behavior.  Cornilles was also the previous Republican winner and lost to Wu in a close race in the last election.

Cornilles will next face the Democratic primary winner Suzanne Bonamici, an Oregon state senator.
