DescriptionRep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.), the fourth most senior Democrat in the House, is facing a formidable challenge this year from GOP opponent Alek Skarlatos in a purple district that came just a fraction of a percentage point away from backing President Donald Trump in 2016.

Skarlatos — a 27-year-old Army veteran who garnered international fame for halting an extremist attack aboard a Paris-bound train in 2015 — is one of the House GOP’s strongest recruits this cycle and has attracted such huge sums of money that he outraised the Democratic incumbent by $1.2 million and outspent him by over $900,000 in the most recent quarter.
