BELLVUE - U.S. Senate candidate Dino Rossi conceded to Senator Patty Murray yesterday evening.
The election results placed Murray in the lead, with the most recent results being 51.27 percent for Murray, 48.73 percent for Rossi.
In a statement, Rossi said, "I ran for the Senate because I believe we need a basic course correction from where Washington, D.C. has been taking us and to make sure this country is as free, as strong and as prosperous in the future as it has been in the past to preserve the best of America for future generations."
He added, "The lesson I leave you with is one we learned as kids: we're all in this together. If Washington, D.C. doesn't act to help the economy grow and solve this massive spending and debt, it's going to hurt us all."
