Anyway, this guy is now an official member of Congress.
Dem Rep Ortiz concedes in Texas 27 after recount - House GOP now up to 62 pick ups in midtermsIn case you were wondering about that photo...
Update: From Roll Call:
Rep. Solomon Ortiz conceded to his Republican challenger Monday night, according to a regional representative of the National Republican Congressional Committee who is in Texas’ 27th district.
The Texas Democrat called challenger Blake Farenthold, a former radio talk-show host, as the last county in his district worked toward wrapping up its recount.
The Farenthold victory brings the net Republican House pickups this cycle to 62 seats, with four House races still outstanding from the midterm elections. The Republican was on Capitol Hill last week for freshman orientation.
