Mods, if this is in the wrong place, please move it. I had no idea where to put this.

I'm hoping that someone here can point me in the right direction to check facts, or confirm/debunk this. Last night I had dinner with a friend and her fiance visiting from Portland. Whenever he’s around the conversation turns to what's going on in the States. During the discussion he made the following claim that I found hard to believe, but not being an American, I don't know where to even begin to check the facts.

This fellow maintains that between Washington and Oregon combined, they account for 4 times more American deaths in Iraq, than the rest of the US put together. Furthermore, that this is because they don't vote Republican.

To me, this strains credulity. But, I have been wrong on more than one occasion in the past, and don't like to just dismiss things out of hand, without at least attempting to check the facts. So, if there are any Americans who could tell me where to begin checking his assertion, could you let me know? This guy really bugs me, and I would love to have some hard data to refute him with, if possible.

Thanks! I don't mind doing the research myself, I just am not sure where the best place to start would be.
