  •  John Tierney did this time (0+ / 0-)

    And was actually favored to lose. He got caught up in some gambling operations his wife was orchestrating. Add that to the fact that his Republican opponent was a well-known gay social liberal (Richard Tisei) and the fact that his district is the reddest in Massachusetts (still pretty D at D+5, however) it looked like the end for Tierney. However, the Libertarian nominee peeled away just enough votes from Tisei to let Tierney squeak by with 48% of the vote and a 1% margin.
