Chiari Surgeon Concedes in Race for U.S. Senate

Wed, 11/05/2014

Dr. Monica Wehby will now have more time for her medical office. 

The Portland-based pediatric neurosurgeon, who treats Chiari patients and children with other neurological problems, lost the Oregon Senate race to incumbent Democratic Sen. Jeff Merkley on Tuesday. Merkley cruised to a 55%-38% victory over Wehby, a first-time candidate. 

Wehby won the Republican primary on May 20.

Her campaign has struggled since June when it was damaged by revelations surrounding her personal life.
