Gill finally concedes

* From a press release…

David Gill Ends Congressional Campaign in 13th District
Thanks Supporters & Calls on Rodney Davis to Seek Compromise To Help Middle Class

Dr. David Gill, Democratic candidate in Illinois’ 13th District, issued the following message to his supporters as he ended his campaign for Congress this afternoon:

“My exhausted campaign team has completed a county by county analysis of outstanding provisional and absentee ballots in the 13th Congressional District, as well as some precinct-based anomalies in ballot returns and turnout.

The closeness of this race (less than 1/2 percentage point) demanded that we diligently check the numbers. I am very grateful for the dedicated work of my campaign staff to go through this data in the last few days, and for the cooperation of election officials in each of the 14 counties.

It has become clear to me, based on the numbers I’ve seen, that there are simply not enough uncounted ballots remaining to wipe out the current 1,287 vote deficit I face in this election. […]

While Rodney Davis and I have very different priorities and political philosophies, I hope we share a few things in common: a deep desire to see a better future for the communities we love in this part of Illinois and a commitment to leave things better than we found them for our children. I hope Mr. Davis will seek ways to compromise and support the President so we can see real progress for middle class families.

The time has now come to bring this exciting campaign to a close. I know the friendships and partnerships we have forged in this long fight together will go on for many years to come. I will never forget all that you have done.”

* Davis’ statement…

Congressman-Elect Rodney Davis issued the following statement Friday evening following David Gill’s concession in the 13th Congressional District race:

“I would like to thank David Gill for the passion with which he campaigned. I appreciate that he has forgone dragging this out further with his concession this evening. Shannon, our family, and I are thankful for the wonderful support we’ve received. I am humbled to have the honor to serve as Congressman for the 13th District and am ready to get to work.”
