Suzanne VanOrman (born 1939) is an Americanmarker politician from Oregonmarker. A Democrat, she is a member of the Oregon House of Representatives, first elected in 2008. VanOrman, who resides in Hood Rivermarker, represents District 52, which encompasses all of Hood River Countymarker and parts of Clackamasmarker and Multnomahmarker counties. She beat mixed martial artist and Olympic silver medalist Matt Lindland 58-42 in the 2008 general election.

VanOrman serves on the Agriculture, Natural Resources and Rural Communities committees. She also holds a leadership role as Vice-Chair of the Education and Human Services committees.

Both the Lindland and VanOrman campaigns were noted as being particularly harsh. VanOrman's campaign video against Lindland was accused by many in the mixed martial arts community as being inaccurate in its portrayal of mixed martial arts competition. Allegedly, this included citing Lindland headbutting despite that being an illegal foul in the Unified Rules, and deliberate repeated use of the charged term "cage fighting" instead of the appropriate term "mixed martial arts" (even displaying footage of Matt's bout in an Affliction promotion which is held in a ring rather than a cage).Lindland's campaign attempted to paint VanOrman as tax-and-spend liberal and a career politician—a political cliché that her supporters denied. Also, Lindland's campaign, despite public record of VanOrman's name, referred to Suzanne as Susan throughout the election cycle.
