Lake Oswego attorney Jim Zupancic, ’79, won the Republican primary in Oregon’s 5th Congressional District on May 18. Zupancic will face four-term Democratic incumbent Darlene Hooley in November.
The Zupancic-Hooley contest is expected to be among the most expensive and heavily contested congressional races in the nation. Zupancic practices international business and IP law as a partner in the Portland office of one of the Northwest’s largest firms, David Wright Tremaine LLP. Prior to moving to Oregon, he was minority general counsel for the California Assembly and an early entrepreneur in the voice-mail industry.
