Incumbent Congressman John Yarmuth will return to Washington for a third term.Yarmuth defeated Todd Lally Tuesday night. In his acceptance speech, Yarmuth criticized Lally and other Republicans for trying to tie Democratic candidates to President Barack Obama and outgoing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi."It makes me really fear for this country when you have two people who work every minute of every day to make life better for every American and they put up with the…nonsense…that they put up with," he said.Yarmuth then touted his work on Democratic legislation such as the health care overhaul and financial reform as reasons for his re-election. He said he will remain loyal to his platform, even though he will be in the minority party for the first time of his congressional career.
