Rep. Cliff Bentz

Representative for Oregon’s 2nd District


Bentz is the representative for Oregon’s 2nd congressional district (view map) and is a Republican. He has served since Jan 3, 2021. Bentz is next up for reelection in 2022 and serves until Jan 3, 2023.

On January 6, 2021 in the hours after the attack on the Capitol, Bentz voted for the exclusion of Arizona and/or Pennsylvania — states narrowly won by Democrats — from the count of Electoral College votes that determined the next President of the United States. Legislators voting to disenfranchise these states were fooled by, or actively participated in, the same lies, conspiracy theories, and preposterous legal arguments about the election that motivated the insurrection at the Capitol.
