Good riddance, the person was a disgrace to the uniform who was given the choice of being humiliated in uniform or quietly retiring from service.

Bachman almost was voted out despite the redistricting that favored her. She is only ahead by 1900 (less than 1%) with 15% uncounted.

I hope that's the final result. Both he and Michele are losing/wining by miiniscule amount of votes.

More tea party traitors on their way out!

If I had to pick only one to GTFO it would be Bachman but I don't think that's going to happen.

In the end, Murphy calculated correctly that, despite being a newcomer, he could win by running as the anti-West candidate.

Allen West is a disgrace to all of us. Good riddance to bad trash, if his defeat holds.

Indeed. One of the more execrable of the tea party douchebags.

I disagree 100 percent.
People like Bachmann and West are the best thing for Dems. They get plenty of face time on cable news and spew the wackiest of the tea party wackyisms.

Without them people might forget how insane the tea party is.
