Dozens of members of the U.S. House of Representatives have missed two-thirds of this session's committee meetings, where much of the nuts-and-bolts work of Congress gets done, a Washington Examiner analysis found. Rep. Niki Tsongas, D-Mass., is a prime example.
Oklahoma Rep. Frank Lucas won his Republican primary with 82.8 percent of the vote on Tuesday. His opponent, Timothy Ray Murray, only received 5.2 percent of the vote. Murray is taking his loss, well, oddly. He's contesting the election results on the grounds that Lucas is dead and has been replaced by a body double.
