Iraq War Vet Loses in House Election

Iraq War Vet Loses in House Election: "CINCINNATI — A Republican former state lawmaker claimed a seat in Congress on Tuesday by narrowly defeating an Iraq war veteran who drew national attention to the race with his military service and a series of harsh attacks on President Bush.

With all precincts reporting, Jean Schmidt had 57,974 votes, compared with Democrat Paul Hackett's 54,401 votes."

This clearly means that the REpublicans will gain seats in the House and Senate in 2006. The Democratic party is too weak.
