Sen. Ron Wyden plans to seek reelection in 2022

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden says he’s seeking reelection in 2022, ending speculation that Oregon’s senior senator might retire and pave the way for a crowded lineup of potential replacements.

Wyden, 71, told Oregon Public Broadcasting that he believes he has more work to do in Washington D.C.

“Of course I’m running,” the Democrat said. “There’s so much to do for Oregonians, and I’d very much like to have the honor of representing Oregonians again.”

Wyden holds several key positions in Congress, including on the Senate Intelligence Committee. Should Democrats regain control of the Senate this month, Wyden is in line to chair the powerful Senate Finance Committee.

1. My Senator

I like Ron Wyden. He has not shied away from difficult issues. He has held town hall meetings in every single county in Oregon every year. Doesn't hide from the more conservative areas either - like our retiring Congressman Greg Walden hid from the more progressive areas in his district.
