ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the lost of Dan Maffei to a congressional seat to represent the 25th District in Washington, D.C. in November. It states that the race was decided by 538 votes and Maffei ran the race contrasting with his colleagues in New York state's congressional delegation because of his pristine image. It adds that Maffei was known as such a straight man and now he is working at a Washington think tank.
