Wehby defeated state Sen. Jason Conger in Tuesday’s primary. She is set to challenge progressive Sen. Jeff Merkley in the general election.

AP reported earlier Tuesday on the race:

Pediatric neurosurgeon Monica Wehby and state Rep. Jason Conger lead a five-person contest for the Republican Senate nomination in Oregon. Some of Wehby’s TV ads drew high praise, but the single mother of four faced reports that a wealthy ex-boyfriend called police last year and accused her of stalking him. The man now says he regrets making the call, and he is backing Wehby’s campaign.
