Democrats rebel against leadership super PAC in expensive Oregon primary

A million-dollar investment by the Democratic House leadership in an Oregon primary has sparked a blowup between the party establishment and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus campaign arm, who accused leaders of taking Hispanic voters for granted.


House Majority PAC, the largest super PAC supporting Democratic House candidates, threw its weight behind Carrick Flynn, a cryptocurrency-funded candidate in the nine-way Democratic primary to fill a newly-created Oregon House seat, sparking the firestorm.


The Hispanic Caucus campaign arm, Bold PAC, responded by condemning the ad buy in support of Flynn, who is white, in an ethnically diverse district with three women of color on the ballot.
