New America? Mia Love Loses and Jesse Jackson Jr. Wins (FROM THE FRIGGIN NUT-HOUSE IN THE MAYO CLINIC)

Stolen From Hat Tip to The Last Refuge

CHICAGO – Jesse Jackson Jr. won re-election to Illinois’ 2nd  Congressional district by a landslide Tuesday night, beating his two opponents,  Marcus Lewis and Brian Woodwoorth.  [He won from the treatment hospital he was been in since Feb 2012].  As of 8:50 p.m., Jackson had captured 68 percent of the vote with  62 percent of precincts reporting.

WASHINGTON - Mia Love lost to Rep. Jim Matheson, son of of the late Scott M. Matheson – one of Utah’s most popular Governors – remains the only Democrat representing Utah in Washington.
Matheson and Love ran in a newly drawn district, which is thought to be conservative, but perhaps not as conservative as Matheson's old district.

She tried and actually ran a campaign.  She lost but honorably.  Jackson is in the Hospital, and won on his name only.  But so did Joseph Kennedy III in Barney Franks old district.  I guess he has a "safe" seat like Jackson does.

Is it too early to be talking about "Term Limits"?
