Grayson, freshman Jewish House member, loses

Rep. Alan Grayson was one of the new members of the Jewish delegation in the House – and he was one of the first defeated on this Bloody Tuesday for the Democrats.

Grayson, an outspoken liberal Democrat who sometimes suffered from foot-in-mouth disease, lost to Republican Daniel Webster in Florida’s 8th district.

Grayson blamed low Democratic turnout, but his controversial statements – including a Holocaust allusion in the health care debate that got him in trouble with the ADL – were undoubtedly a big part of Tuesday’s results.
