After only a single term that saw him become a viral video sensation in the liberal blogosphere for his no-holds-barred tirades, Representative Alan Grayson has lost his reelection bid in Florida's eighth district to Republican challenger Dan Webster.
"It looks like Dan Webster is the next congressman from Orlando," Grayson said.
Webster said his win affirms his decision to run a positive campaign.
"This is a new day for our country and I am thankful to be a part of it. This is a huge victory for people who are tired of the politics of personal destruction," he said in a written statement. "We ran a positive campaign against a broken system. Now it's time to begin the work of fixing it."
