Israel/PalestineUS Politics

As we reported over here, President Barack Obama’s victory capped off a very bad night for the Jewish right. But you don’t have to take it from us: check out the results.

Below, you’ll find election results for the Congressional races Mondoweiss has reported on in recent years, as well as links to our past coverage. Some of the races have not been called yet; this list will be updated throughout the day. “District” races are for the House of Representatives.

Races to watch

–(R) Shmuley Boteach v. (D) Bill Pascrell — New Jersey 9th District. Pascrell beat Boteach handily, according to NorthJersey.com.

–(R) Allen West v. (D) Patrick Murphy — Florida District 18. Murphy upset West in a razor-tight race, as Murphy won by a margin of 2,400 votes.

–(R) Adam Hasner v. (D) Lois Frankel — Florida District 22. Frankel beats Hasner.

–(R) Bono Mack v. (D) Raul Ruiz–California District 36. Ruiz pulled out a victory in a close race.

–(D) Howard Berman v. Brad Sherman (D)–California District 30. Sherman claimed victory early this morning in what has been a nasty race after Berman conceded. The two Democrats were pitted against each other due to redistricting and a new law allowing the top two vote getters in a primary to face each other regardless of party affiliation.

–(D) Kyrsten Sinema v. (R) Vernon Parker–Arizona District 9. The race has yet to be called, but Sinema is clinging to a slight lead.

— (R) Josh Mandel v. (D) Sherrod Brown–Ohio Senate. Brown beat Mandel with a comfortable lead.

–(R) Joe Walsh v. (D) Tammy Duckworth — Illinois District 8. Duckworth beat Walsh by a comfortable margin.
