Another One Bites The Dust

In Texas’ 27th Congressional district, incumbent (for nearly 28 years) Representative Solomon P. Ortiz (D) conceded late last night to challenger Blake Farenthold (R), bringing the GOP net gain in the House up to +62 (a “wipeout” according to the Zombie scale). (H/T: Big Government) More votes for Ortiz had been miraculously found during the recount, but not enough.

The 112th Congress will (so far; four races remain undecided) have 241 Republican representatives; this is the most representation the GOP has had in the House since 1949.
