Renee Hoagenson got more of a challenge than she was expecting.

Hoagenson finally came out ahead at nearly 11 p.m. on Tuesday night after a night of close competition with 4th District Democratic house opponent Hallie Thompson,

After spending much of the night behind her opponent as polls were reported, Hoagenson ended up with 51.9% of the vote, all precincts reporting.
