Incumbents Lose

Now that virtually all of the votes are in, it's clear that Joe Lieberman narrowly (52%-48%) lost to Ned Lamont in the Democratic primary in CT, and that Cynthia McKinney decisively lost her congressional seat (59%-41%) to Hank Johnson down in Georgia-4. Lieberman indicated he'd go on to compete for his seat in November, as an independent. While McKinney's camp complained earlier tonight of supposed election machine irregularities, Johnson's margin of victory makes any sort of challenge by the incumbent impractical.
