This House seat was held by C.W. Bill Young almost forever and to find out what he was like, I turned to the American Conservative Union.  The Union has rankings for House members from 1971-2013. In 2011, the average House GOP rating wasn't given but Young's rating was 73.91. In 2012, the GOP average was 83.94% and Young's rating was 76.00. In 2013, the GOP average was 76.48% and Young's rating was 71.

It looks like Young wasn't a crazy (the WaPo article linked above described him as "genteel") so if the Democrat wins, it won't be a big deal although I'm sure many will try to spin it to their advantage.
