Daily Caller: Several ‘Ron Paul Republicans’ win closely contested House races

Good article. Looks like we gained even more ground in the house!

Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul will retire from Congress next year after serving for 12 terms, but several Republicans influenced by the iconic libertarian-leaning lawmaker will be arriving to take his place.

Thomas Massie won the race to replace retiring Kentucky Republican Rep. Geoff Davis, beating Democrat Bill Adkins by 20 percentage points. Massie, an ally of Paul’s son, Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul, raised nearly 10 times as much money as Adkins, according to the Lexington-Herald Leader.

Michigan Republican Rep. Justin Amash, who was already vying to be the House’s next “Dr. No” in his first term, was re-elected with 58 percent of the vote. Democrat Steve Pestka had hoped to win the votes of independents and moderate Republicans who might regard Amash as too extreme, but failed to gain traction against the 31-year-old congressman.

OMG!!!

Thank you. I must have been looking at the early returns.

This is great news.

All in all...

a great night for liberty. We got liberty candidates elected while neocons were losing or sweating out razor-thin margins. Willard lost in a landslide.

I don't play, I commission the league.

Who won Ron Paul's old seat?

Anyone good?

I really wish Ron Paul left us with his staffer or someone who would win that seat : /

Thanks for the info

...we did pretty well!

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

Art Robinson (R-OR 4th) LOST

Endorsing Romney sure didn't help him in this race! He even did worse than he did back in 2010.

Besides DeFazio (incumbent Democrat) isn't all bad. He voted against the Patriot Act every time it has come up, votes against the Fed every time as well. He voted against the stimulus and against the NDAA. Oh and SOPA and PIPA too.

DeFazio Anti Gun

I see your point with DeFazio but he does have a
D- rating from the GOA (Gun Owners Of America)

I guess DeFazio can be worse.

Ted Cruz won too

.

Glad but anxious

I was glad to see that Cruz won, but I am anxious to see how well he defends liberty in the Senate.

Same

I'm in the same boat here.

Lets cross our fingers. Rand could seriously use an ally. With luck he'll get one.

Kerry Bentivolio

Kerry Bentivolio won in my district and I was proud to vote for him!

Congrats Kerry, do us proud in DC!!

Eric Hoffer

I would love to see a bunch

I would love to see a bunch more Ron Paul republicans in the fray. How many of his endorsements made it?

This is wonderful news!

Kerry B in MI was an awesome win....he is in a very crucial district Oakland and Wayne County.

Thanks for spreading the good news!

For Freedom!
The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.

I hope

I just hope that he makes a big enough name for himself that in 2012 the GOP doesn't try and field a primary challenger against him.

Great news on his win! I was happy to fill in the oval for him.

Eric Hoffer
