Jewish Senate hopefuls in Hawaii, Ohio and Nevada went down to defeat.

Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-Nev.) lost her bid to unseat Republican Sen. Dean Heller, who received nearly 46 percent of the vote to Berkley’s nearly 45 percent. Berkley, an outspoken supporter of Israel who has had a long-running feud with Las Vegas casino tycoon and Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson, will leave Congress after 14 years in the House.

In Ohio, Republican state Treasurer Josh Mandel was defeated by incumbent Sherrod Brown. The Democrat, a strong ally of unions, garnered 50 percent of the vote to 45 percent for Mandel, a former Marine and Iraq War veteran.

In Hawaii, Republican former Gov. Linda Lingle lost her bid for a Senate seat to Rep. Mazie Hirono, a Democat. Hirono won with nearly 63 percent of the vote to Lingle’s 37 percent.
