Two Democratic seats of members of the January 6 committee lost flipped to Republican challengers in Tuesday night’s midterm election in Florida and Virginia.

Cory Mills, an Army veteran-turned-defense contractor defeated Democrat Karen Green in Florida’s 7th Congressional District with 58.54 percent of the vote at the time the race was called. Mills will fill a seat vacated by Democrat Stephanie Murphy who served on the committee and announced her retirement from Congress after three terms this year rather than run in a redrawn district that heavily favored the Republican candidate.



Virginia's 2nd Congressional District was flipped red after Republican state Senator Jen Kiggans defeated Democrat incumbent Rep. Elaine Luria, in one of the most competitive House races of the 2022 midterm elections.

Luria said in her concession speech, “Our work is not done. Donald Trump wants to announce for president in 2024, and the dangers that exist to our democracy, the things that I’ve been working on as a member of the Select Committee for the January 6th investigation … that work continues.”

However, almost half of the Jan. 6 Committee won’t be continuing that work.

Committee Vice Chair Liz Cheney was overwhelmingly defeated by Wyoming attorney Harriet Hageman in the Republican primary by more than 37 points.

Illinois Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger opted not to run again as did Rep. Stephanie Murphy, (D-FL).
