It looks like Dan Lungren has lost his reelection bid for the Sacramento-area House seat, at least according to AP.  His lifetime rating from the League of Conservation Voters was 4% — the only surprise being that he must have voted for something pro-environmental a couple of times in his career.  (Oddly enough, he came out in favor of removing the dam and restoring the Hetch Hetchy valley.  Some observers viewed this as a way of taking a swipe at San Francisco by impairing its water supply.)  Lungren was defeated by Dr. Ami Bera, the son of Indian immigrants and a strong supporter of renewable energy.
