- Wayne Gilchrest (MD-1) lost in the primary to the conservative Andy Harris. Harris is currently trailing Democrat Frank Kratovil by 915 votes.
- Jim Ramstad (MN-3) did not run for reelection. In his district, Republican Erik Paulsen defeated Democrat Ashwin Madia. Paulsen's campaign involved some dirty advertising, not a good sign for moderation.
- Frank Lobiondo (NJ-2) was reelected.
- Chris Smith (NJ-4) was reelected.
- 38-year-old Mike Ferguson (NJ-7) did not run for reelection. State Senate Minority Leader Leonard Lance kept the seat for the Republicans. Lance appears to be a moderate.
- Jim Saxton (NJ-3) retired. John Adler won the seat for the Democrats.
- John McHugh (NY-23) was reelected.
- Jim Walsh (NY-25) did not seek reelection. Daniel Maffei picked up the seat for the Democrats.
- Mark Kirk (IL-10) was reelected in a replay of the 2006 tight race against Dan Seals.
- Tim Johnson (IL-15) was easily reelected.
- Chris Shays (CT-4), the Last of the New England Republicans, lost to Democrat Jim Himes.
- Dave Reichert (WA-8) is leading Darcy Burner by less than 2000 votes with less than half of the precincts reporting. This is looking like a replay of their 2006 race, which Reichert won by 2%, but it may be even closer this time.
For comparison, of the 12 most conservative House members, 11 were easily reelected; only Bill Sali from Idaho lost (to Democrat Walt Minnick).
Moderate republicans are going the way of the dodo.
