Kosmas First Incumbent to Fall; Democrats Offset Loss With Delaware Win

Florida freshman Rep. Suzanne Kosmas became the first Democratic incumbent to fall Tuesday night, at the beginning of what is expected to be a good night for Republicans. 

Kosmas was defeated by state Rep. Sandy Adams (R), and the Associated Press called the race with almost 70 percent of precincts reporting. Adams, a former deputy sheriff, led by nearly 20 points.
The loss was offset, however, by the Democratic pickup of a House seat in Delaware.

As expected, former Lt. Gov. John Carney (D) defeated conservative real estate developer Glen Urquhart in the race for the seat left open by GOP Rep. Mike Castle’s decision to run for the Senate. The Associated Press called the race just as polls closed at 8 p.m.
