    In the first Congressional race of 2012, a Democrat won decisively over a Republican.

    Suzanne Bonamici, a former Federal Trade Commission lawyer who most recently served as a state senator, garnered 54 percent of the vote to defeat Republican businessman Rob Cornilles, who ended with 39 percent, a website for the state elections office showed.

    Two minor candidates split the remainder of the vote, which like all Oregon elections was conducted by mail.
