The Democratic strength in cities, including Corvallis, Eugene, Portland, and Salem, as well as along the coast is clearly shown.

2008 saw the most Democratic electorate in Oregon in decades:  http://lindholmcompanyblog.com/?p=11

In general, the partisan geography of Oregon’s house districts follow the national trends where urban areas are the most Democratic, rural areas are the most Republican, and suburban areas are in the middle.

The “hub and spoke” pattern is clearly visible in the Willamette Valley where some districts include large urban areas and extend far into rural areas.
