HOLY CAO!

Stunning - According the AP, Republican challenger Joseph Cao defeats nine-term incumbent William "Dollar Bill" Jefferson here in the Lousiana Second Congressional District. (ht/CP)

I'm glad.

I must say I'm surprised, though. Despite Jefferson's indictment, his ability to win his primary and history seemed to suggest he would win....

The 2nd District has not elected a Republican SINCE 1889!

Anh "Joseph" Cao will also be the first Vietnamese-American member of Congress.
