Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tina Kotek is set to become Oregon's next governor, with a four point lead over her GOP opponent Christine Drazan, Politico reports.
It was a three-way race between Kotek, who served as the state House speaker, Republican Christine Drazan and former Democrat-turned independent Betsy Johnson.
Kotek will replace current Oregon Democratic Gov. Kate Brown whose term will be up in 2023.
Most Democrats were not fans of Gov. Brown, who had a very low approval rating according to NPR.
Kotek will become one of the nation's first openly lesbian governors, NPR reports, "a title she shares with Maura Healey, a Democrat elected governor Tuesday in Massachusetts."
