Mitt Romney is lending a hand to Oregon Republicans.

(CNN) - Mitt Romney's lending of a helping hand to Republicans in Oregon brings to nearly 40 the number of states where the possible 2012 GOP presidential hopeful has assisted candidates.

The former Massachusetts governor's political action committee, Free and Strong America PAC, Tuesday announced the endorsement of four GOP candidates in Oregon, including former pro-basketball player Chris Dudley, who is the party's nominee for governor. The PAC also announced that it's contributing $17,500 to the candidates' campaigns.

"Oregon – and our nation – needs leaders who will say no to the culture of higher taxes, higher spending, and higher debt, and that is why I am proud to stand with these candidates today," said Romney, in a statement released by his PAC.

The CNN 100 takes a look at the top 100 House races, from now until Election Day.

Editor's Note: In the final 100 days before Election Day, CNN has been profiling one race at random each day from among the nation's top 100 House races, which we've dubbed "The CNN 100." Read the full list here. Today's featured district is:

Oregon 5th – Rep. Kurt Schrader (D) is seeking a 2nd term
Primary: May 18, 2010
Location: Willamette Valley/Central Coast
Days until Election Day: 91

Scandal plagued the Republican nominee in Oregon's 5th district in 2008 and helped Democrats add to their 12-year lock on this seat. This year, Republicans have a new candidate they hope will give Democratic freshman Rep. Kurt Schrader the kind of serious challenge he missed out on two years ago.
