Candidate for
Oregon House of Representatives District 52
Campaign website
Peter Nordbye was a 2012 Democratic candidate for District 52 of the Oregon House of Representatives.

In his 2012 campaign, Nordbye aimed to stand up against special interest groups and corporations by limiting individual contributions to $50.00. Nordbye's campaign only accepted contributions from individuals that lived in District 52 and ignored contributions from political organizations, groups and businesses. While many believed that Nordbye had little chance of unseating incumbent Mark Johnson (R) in the general election, Nordbye came within four percentage points of doing just that. The election was closely contested even though Nordbye spent only $15,000 on his campaign, while Johnson spent more than $180,000.[1] [2]
