1. Associated Press called the race for Bera

Bera ousts GOP Rep. Dan Lungren in California U.S. Congress District 7 race
15 November 2012

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Republican Rep. Dan Lungren has lost his re-election bid to Democratic challenger Ami Bera in one of California's most hotly contested congressional contests.

Voters from the Sacramento suburbs ousted the veteran lawmaker in the race for the state's newly redrawn 7th Congressional District. This was the second attempt for Bera, a 45-year-old physician who failed to unseat Lungren two years ago.

The Associated Press called the race for Bera on Thursday. He defeated Lungren 51.1 percent to 48.9 percent.

Bera's win adds to Democratic gains in California's congressional races. The state's majority party benefited from an independent redistricting process that was in full effect for the first time this year.

Before the Nov. 6 election, California's congressional delegation had 33 Democrats, 19 Republicans and one vacancy in a Democratic district.

3. Yay!

And then, even with all this type of good news, it sticks in my throat, how the "media" keep saying that voters
"GAVE" the House to the Pukes....

Uhhhh, Limp Media? Listening? Those voters took away seats from Pukes and Baggers.

2014 and 2016, Time to REALLY kick some Puke ass!!!
