Comeback for DesJarlais?

"Two years is a lifetime in politics. Just ask Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-TN), Roll Call reports.

"GOP operatives had all but written off the Tennessee Republican. In October 2012, it was revealed the anti-abortion rights physician had encouraged an ex-wife to have two abortions prior to their marriage and had carried on multiple affairs with patients and co-workers -- an infraction for which he was fined $500 by a medical board."

But now, in the final days of a primary race with Time Tracy (R), DesJarlais "is in a better position than Republicans ever anticipated. He might even win."
