Republican Suzanne Weber has pulled ahead in the race for House District 32. The initial batch of results after 8 p.m. showed that her Democratic opponent Debbie Boothe-Schmidt was ahead by 98 votes, but as more results were counted, Weber quickly overtook her opponent.

With more votes counted, Wednesday morning showed Weber with a lead of 20,788 votes, or 53.89%, to Boothe-Schmidt's 17,701 or 45.88%.

With her victory, Weber has flipped a house district held by Democrats since 2003. Her win also dashed hopes by Oregon's Democratic Party that the legislature could achieve a walkout-proof majority. Weber also secured the nomination of the Independent Party of Oregon and the state's Libertarian party.
