PORTLAND, OR (AP) -

Earl Blumenauer has won his congressional race.

The Democrat defeated Republican Ronald Green and Progressive candidate Woody Broadnax in Tuesday's election.

Blumenauer represents the 3rd Congressional District, which encompasses eastern Clackamas County and almost all of Multnomah County.

He was first elected in 1996. Transit has been a key issue for him in Congress and he is a member of the powerful Ways and Means Committee.

Green is a TriMet bus operator who opposes offshoring and outsourcing while seeking a tariff policy to protect American jobs.

Broadnax campaigned to combat poverty and provide free universal health care for children.
