Editorial: Walden makes the right call to leave Washington

Rep. Greg Walden’s surprise announcement that he will not run for re-election is a good move for him and for the district.

Greg Walden wasn’t in danger of losing his seat representing Oregon’s Second Congressional district. There’s little doubt that the 11-term congressman would have handily won re-election if he chose to run for a twelfth term in 2020. Even against his most credible Democratic challenger in years, Walden cruised to victory in 2018 to represent the sprawling, mostly rural and predominantly Republican district.
