Last week as the votes were still being counted, Wynn joked with fellow congressman about the race's narrow margin.
Here's an exchange Wynn had at a House committee hearing with Rep. Joe Barton (R-Tex.) about the close contest, decided by fewer than 3,000 votes:
Barton: Down in Texas, we had a Democratic primary about 50 years ago that Lyndon Johnson won by 54 votes. And he got the nickname "Landslide Lyndon." We have Mr. Wynn next. He had a little bit of a tussle last week, but he did win. And so, I want to recognize "Landslide Wynn" for any opening statement that he wishes .....
Wynn: Well, thank you very much, Mr. Chairman. In fact, they're still counting, but we're quite optimistic. And I did take a couple pages out of Lyndon's book, so if I win, it can be attributed to Texas know-how.
Barton: I hope not. I hope you win fair and square.
Wynn: A win is a win.
