Oberstar out, Chip Cravaack takes over

| November 3, 2010

It looks like it’s out with the old and in with the new.

After serving eighteen terms, House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Sen. James “Jim” Oberstar (D-Minn.) has lost to Republican Chip Cravaack.

Oberstar lost by just more than 4,000 votes, according to a Politico.com report.

Oberstar becomes the third chairman to be ousted from office, joining Budget Committee Chairman John Spratt of South Carolina and Armed Services Committee Chairman Ike Skelton of Missouri, Politico.com reports.
