In unofficial results, voters favored the incumbent 54.81 percent to Republican challenger Tootie Smith's 38.62 percent. The resounding victory sends the former Canby-area vetrinarian back to Washington D.C. for his fourth term.

Oregon’s 5th congressional district extends from Mt. Hood to the coast.
