Throughout the campaign, Melissa Bean insisted U.S. Rep. Phil Crane was "out of town, out of touch and out of time."
Now, thanks to Bean, he's out of a job.
Bean, a Democrat, pulled off the state's shocker Tuesday by ousting the veteran Crane 52 percent to 48 percent with 99 percent of precincts reporting.
She declared victory at 10:45 p.m. Tuesday. Crane conceded moments later. It was the first loss of Crane's career. He withdrew early from his 1980 bid for president.
