PORTLAND, Ore. — While congressional incumbents are running scared in other states, members of Oregon's delegation face either light or no opposition in the primary.

In House districts, Republican Greg Walden and Democrats Peter DeFazio and Kurt Schrader are unopposed.

Democratic Reps. Earl Blumenauer and David Wu are expected to win their contests easily Tuesday, as is Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden.

One Republican congressional primary is drawing interest in light of the nationwide rumblings of tea party candidates.

In Wu's district in northeast Oregon, two candidates professing tea party allegiance are contending with a candidate touted by the national Republican congressional campaign organization.
