Democrat Jim Matheson of Utah has won a tight race against Republican challenger Mia Love. The only Democrat in the Utah congressional delegation, Matheson bested Love by 1 percentage point. Here's more from the Deseret News:

In winning another term, Matheson held on to his position as the state's lone Democrat in Congress. 

"I believe in building consensus and supporting good ideas wherever they come from and in being the voice for all Utahns," Matheson said. "This is who I am and how I always sought to move forward, by leading from the center and bringing people together."

Matheson said he expected the race to be tight and built a good ground game to get voters to polls.

"I want to tell you something. I have had a remarkable journey," Matheson told cheering Democrats at the Sheraton Hotel. "I am proud to have been a leader in getting things done."
