Susheela Jayapal, the sister of far-left Squad member Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) was trounced in the Democratic primary in Oregon’s 3rd Congressional District to replace Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), who is retiring after serving for almost 30 years.
Jayapal lost to Democratic challenger Maxine Dexter, who won the race with 53.2 percent of the vote with more than a third of the vote counted, according to Decision Desk.

Dexter defeated Jayapal and six other Democrats for Blumenauer’s seat after he announced in October that he would not be seeking reelection for the Portland-area district.

Jayapal had been backed by national figures of the progressive movement including her sister, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Barbara Lee (D-CA)  

Dexter received mostly local endorsements including former Oregon Governors John Kitzhaber (D) and Ted Kulongoski (D), Oregon Senate President Rob Wagner (D), and Oregon Speaker of the House Julie Fahey (D).
