  1. Bean
  2. Ortiz
  3. Connolly (VA)
  4. McNerney
  5. Larsen (WA)
  6. Maffei

Also, there were 16 Obamacare supporters who came from districts that had voted for McCain in 2008. Twelve of these seats have flipped to Republicans:

  1. Carney
  2. Ellsworth
  3. Hill
  4. Kirkpatrick (AZ)
  5. Mitchell
  6. Mollohan
  7. Perriello
  8. Pomeroy

On the other hand, John Murtha’s seat was maintained, and both Rahall and Space’s seats were safe.
