Metsger-York race second-most expensive in state
The race between Sen. Rick Metsger and Carol York is the second-most expensive state senate competition, according to the Money in Politics Research Action Project.
Together, Metsger - the Democratic District 26 incumbent - and Republican challenger York have raised more than $800,000 for their respective campaigns. That's second only to the race between Sen. Vicki Walker, D-Eugene, and her challenger, Republican Jim Torrey, who have raised more than $1 million.
As of this week, York has out-fundraised Metsger, raising $406,074 for her race. Metsger, by comparison, has raised $394,762 - about 91 percent of his competitor's total.
