SAVANNAH — After a decade in Congress largely spent distancing himself from his own Democratic Party, U.S. Rep. John Barrow was defeated Tuesday by a Republican who told voters the congressman's claims of bipartisan independence were the words of a two-faced politician. "It was a terrific win and hard-fought campaign," said Allen spokesman Dan McLagan. "Rick is looking forward to going to Washington to cut the size of government, fight for term limits and do everything else he talked about on the campaign trail."
