Posted by Rachel Leigh email

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Democrat Congressman Tim Mahoney released the following statement Tuesday night to Republican Tom Rooney after losing his re-election bid to Rooney.

Mahoney fell behind in the polls after word of his affairs and a subsequent FBI investigation came to light. 

The statement said: "I would like to congratulate Tom Rooney on his victory tonight [Tuesday night]. It has been an honor to represent Florida's 16th District. I am proud of all that we have accomplished together including passing the Homeowners' Defense Act, laying the foundation to make South Florida the biofuels capital of America, bringing air service back to Charlotte County, and getting the funding to build the Ft. Pierce Court House.

"I can only hope that what we have achieved over the past two years leaves a lasting impact on this wonderful community. Thank you to all the 16th District voters for giving me the opportunity to fight for you."
