2002 Oregon Democratic Gubernatorial Primary: Stein Relative Vote

image016

Stein was a Multnomah County Commissioner. Previously, Stein had been a state legislator from Portland. Stein was not supported by the Democratic establishment.

The critical importance for Democrats of winning the Portland media market is evident in this map. The Portland media market covers all of Oregon except from Lane County (Eugene) south in western Oregon, the northeast corner of the state, and the southern tier of counties in central and eastern Oregon.

The adage of “dominate the dominant media market” held true for Democrats.

Surprisingly, Stein did best in the 4th Congressional District of southwestern Oregon, far from her Portland base. However, this does make sense if we note that, as a Portland politician, she never built up much of a base there because the media market simply drowned her message. And, during the campaign, the other candidates simply crowded out her message in the other parts of the state.
