      RPCVs in Congress Hold Seats, Garamendi is California
      Lieutenant Governor

      Two RPCV members of the House of Representatives
      facing significant challenges have reportedly been
      re-elected.

      Connecticut Congressman Chris Shays (Fiji 68-70) was
      declared the winner of his re-election bid with just
      over 50% of the vote. As of early Wednesday morning,
      his Democratic challenger had not conceded the race.

      In upstate New York, Congressman James Walsh (Nepal
      70-72) also won a close race, receiving 51% of the
      vote.

      California’s two RPCV Congressmen easily won
      re-election. Mike Honda (El Salvador 65-67) received
      72% of the vote, while Sam Farr (Colombia 62-64) won
      re-election with nearly 77% of the vote.

      The fifth RPCV member of the House of Representatives,
      Wisconsin Congressman Tom Petri (Somalia 66-67) was
      unopposed.

      In other races involving RPCVs:

      In California, John Garamendi (Ethiopia 66-68) was
      declared the winner Wednesday morning in a very close
      race for Lieutenant Governor.
      Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle (Tunisia 67-69) was
      re-elected with nearly 53% of the vote.
      In Texas, Independent candidate Kinky Friedman
      (Malaysia 66-68) received nearly 13% of the vote in a
      five-way race won by incumbent Governor Rick Perry.
