Washington (CNN) – Moderate Georgia Democratic Rep. John Barrow was re-elected to a fifth term in the House on Tuesday, CNN projects, and remains the last white male Democrat from the Deep South in the House of Representatives.
The remaining Democratic congressmen from Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, South Carolina and Georgia are African Americans.

Barrow, one of the so-called "Blue Dog" Democrats, the group of fiscal conservatives in the House, has faced strong Republican challenges every cycle, and this year Republican Lee Anderson got 46% to Barrow's 54% of the vote. Both parties put considerable resources into the race.
Although Barrow survived this year, the ranks of moderate Democrats have dwindled in the House, and fellow Blue Dog Larry Kissell lost his race in North Carolina.
