Well, poor old democrat porch dog “who are you” Bob Etheridge D-NC2 lost his seat to Renee Ellmers: from the Raleigh Telegram http://www.raleightelegram.com/2010110306.html
Although a recount is possible, in the latest numbers, Republican challenger and political newcomer Renee Ellmers defeated Democratic Congressman Bob Etheridge in the Second Congressional District in North Carolina on Tuesday. According to the election results as of press time, Ellmers scored 50% of the vote compared to 49% of the vote for Etheridge. Tom Rose, the Libertarian Party candidate received around 2% of the vote. Votes may be recounted, but the official count for Ellmers was 91,924 compared to 89,829 for Etheridge and 3,419 for Rose. The race drew national attention earlier this year, when Congressman Etheridge was shown in a video to be apparently assaulting a young man who questioned him about his political record on a Washington DC sidewalk.
Good riddance to you Bob and congratulations to Renee Ellmers!
