Based on unofficial election results released Tuesday, Nov. 6, Riley was leading the race with more than 59 percent of the vote. Alexander Flores had 41 percent.
The pair are running against one another to represent Senate District 15, which includes Hillsboro, Forest Grove, Cornelius and North Plains.
