Post wins GOP nod in District 25

May 20, 2014

News-Register Staff

Conservative talk show host Bill Post of Keizer won the Republican nomination for state representative from District 25, collecting more than 75 percent of the vote in early returns from Marion and Yamhill Counties.

No Democratic filed, making Post a virtual shoo-in for the seat being vacated by fellow Keizer Republican Kim Thatcher. Thatcher is making a bid to move up to the Senate.

Post had nearly 2,900 votes in the district, which encompasses Newberg and St. Paul on the Yamhill County side of the river, but skirts Dundee. His opponent, Barbara Jensen, had 900 votes.

Post recently suspended his show in order to comply with Federal Communication Commission fairness rules.
