Description After taking to the House floor to sing 'Twinkle Twinkle Kenneth Starr', Democrats smelled vulnerability eminating from conservative freshman Rep. Mike Pappas.

An anti-impeachment backlash hit Mike Pappas hard. Running ad after ad mocking Pappas's song stylings proved effective to the challenger, as scientist Rush Holt scored a stunning upset in a relatively Republican district.
