She called the freshmen class of 2006 her “majority makers.” She can call them her “minority makers” now.

Democrats are left holding only five House seats from Ohio, as Republicans took out freshman Democratic Reps. John Boccieri, Mary Jo Kilroy and Steve Driehaus. Sophomores Zack Space and Charlie Wilson also went down.
