“The voters have spoken," he said in a statement.

"I'm proud of the campaign we ran. We talked about fighting for working families, keeping promises we made to our seniors about Medicare and Social Security, and giving our men and women in uniform the support they need and deserve. The fight for those things hasn't ended, even though my campaign for Congress has."

DesJarlais was elected in the Tea Party wave that swept the House in 2010.
