President Obama campaigned for only one individual congressman this fall: Rep. Tom Perriello of Virginia. Perriello lost tonight to Republican Robert Hurt 53 percent to 45 percent.

 Perriello, as closely identified with President Obama as any congressman in the House, doubled down on his alliance on Friday when he and the president campaigned together in Charlottesville.


During the campaign, Hurt consistently called Perriello a rubber stamp for the president and Nancy Pelosi.
