After a very close race, Congressman-elect Joe Walsh was celebrating his victory Sunday with a party in far northwest suburban Lakemoor.

Walsh ran against Democratic incumbent Melissa Bean for Illinois' 8th District congressional seat. The final vote count wasn't completed until Tuesday, and Bean conceded the race.

Walsh won by approximately 300 votes. He had the support of the Tea Party movement.
