OR Secretary of State




Notes: As expected Sen. Ron Wyden (D) easily won a third term, defeating IT consultant Mark Callahan (R).  The four minor party candidates on the ballot together obtained almost 10-percent of the vote.

Callahan, the surprise winner of the May Republican primary, had gained some name recognition from four previous runs for office.

The general election race was not competitive financially. 
According to the FEC for 2015-16 the Wyden campaign reported disbursements of $7.6 million compared to disbursements totaling $194,520 for the Callahan campaign (>). 

The minor party candidates were attorney and longshoreman Shanti Lewallen (WF), a progressive who appealed to Bernie Sanders' supporters, at 3.17%, followed by Steven Cody Reynolds (IP) at 3.05%, Eric Navickas (PG) at 2.50% and Jim Lindsey (L) at 1.23%.
