Notes: As expected Sen. Ron Wyden (D) easily won a third term, defeating the surprise winner of the May Republican primary Mark Callahan.  Callahan, an IT consultant who had gained some name recognition from four previous runs for office, had a very modestly funded campaign. 
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 (+).  Four third party candidates together obtained almost 10-percent of the vote.  Attorney and longshoreman Shanti Lewallen (WF), a progressive who appealed to Bernie Sanders' supporters, attracted 3.17% followed by Steven Cody Reynolds, Independent candidate, at 3.05%, Eric Navickas (PG) at 2.50% and Jim Lindsey (L) at 1.23%.
