A Republican Beats a Progressive Democrat in a Liberal Congressional Race

A Republican challenger has pulled off an upset in a heavily Democratic congressional district in northern California, out-polling anti-war and anti-corporate candidate Norman Solomon for a chance to run against liberal Democrat Jared Huffman. Christopher Martinez reports from San Rafael. Update: Normon Solomon's campaign says it is not conceding because thousands of vote by mail ballots still haven't been counted.
