Hateful, homophobic Marilyn Musgrave lost tonight

Finally. Musgrave is gone. Betsy Markey thumped her:

GOP Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave was unseated tonight by Democratic challenger Betsy Markey after another intense campaign that blasted voters with nasty attack ads.

Musgrave first won the 4th Congressional District in 2002 and has fought bitter campaigns to hang onto it ever since.

The race, considered one of the most important in the country, was eyed by Democrats as key to expanding their control in Congress. Republicans have had control of the seat since 1972.
