The first Republican African-American woman in Congress has lost her reelection bid, while another tight race in New York also was decided in a Democrat’s favor. In final results posted Tuesday, Rep. Mia Love of Utah lost to Democratic Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams by just 694 votes in the suburban 4th District. McAdams’ 0.258-point margin of victory put him just beyond the reach of a recount and follows a trend of Democrats flipping House seats in suburban districts in the Nov. 6 midterm elections.
