Christine Drazan has won the Republican nomination for governor in Oregon, edging out Bob Tiernan and Stan Pulliam in a crowded field in the famously blue state.

Decision Desk HQ made the call on the race one night after the polls closed, with Drazan being named the projected winner with around 23% support. Tiernan had just over 18% of the vote, with Pulliam around 10% and none of the other 16 candidates in double digits.

Tiernan won the coastal countries, while Drazan carried the victory by winning most of the counties in the middle of the state.

Former President Donald Trump did not endorse a candidate in the race.

Drazan will face Democrat nominee Tina Kotek, who was declared the winner Tuesday night.
