Illinois 8th District- Republicans Pick Up Another House Seat

The votes have been tallied in one of the House races that had yet to be called and the Tea Party backed Republican Joe Walsh wins an upset over three-term sitting Democratic Representative Melissa Bean.

Bean conceded after the absentee and provisional ballots were counted and she fell short by 291 votes out of more than 200,000 cast.

The Hill and Chicago Sun Times.

This gives Republicans over 60 seats gained in the House of Representatives in the midterm elections from November 2, 2010.
