PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum won reelection on Tuesday night, defeating opponent Republican Daniel Crowe.

This will be Rosenblum’s second term.

No Republican has been the attorney general of Oregon since 1980. Rosenblum will keep it that way.

Rosenblum, 66, didn’t have a Democratic opponent as she ran for a second term. She gained more than 56% of the vote in 2012. But she was appointed by former Gov. John Kitzhber earlier in 2012 to fill out the rest of John Kroger’s term when he left to become president of Reed College.

Her Republican opponent is Daniel Crowe, who was a US Army Judge Advocate from 1998 through 2011. He was also unopposed in the primary and holds a BA in philosophy from West Point, a JD from the University of Washington School of Law and an MBA from the European School of Management and Technology.
