And then there was one

[by David S. Bernstein]

The Hartford Courant is reporting that Democrat Joe Courtney has won the official recount over incumbent Republican Congressman Rob Simmons, by 91 votes, in Connecticut's 2nd district. This means that Christopher Shays, who won re-election with a whopping 50.9% of the vote in the Connecticut 4th -- the region way, way, down in the southwest tip of the state -- will be New England's only Republican member of the US House of Representatives in the coming session.

Or, to put it another way, you'll be able to start in Houlton, Maine and drive for about eight hours before entering a town with a Republican congressman.
