Mullen Concedes Congressional Race to Walorski


Tuesday night it was a nail biter of a race between Brendan Mullen and Jackie Walorski for Indiana's 2nd Congressional District.  The numbers went back and forth all night long.  Mullen conceded the race just before midnight after losing by less than 4,000 votes.  At the West Side Democratic Club in South Bend he told his supporters, "18 months ago the pundits said I was going to be climbing Mount. Everest without oxygen and we just lost by one point and that's not because of me that's simply what you have done for us."

Because of how close the race remained all night, Mullen supporters said it kept them on the edge of their seat and also caused a lot of anxiety.   "I have no nails left so if that's any indication of how close it is and it's been a serious nail biter for everybody," said Samuel Alameda

Mullen also admitted it was an emotional night for him.  He said there were a lot of highs and a lot of lows.  "A lot of anxieties but tomorrow the sun rises and I will still March Forward," said Mullen.

Mullen said now he's just going to rest and spend time with his daughters.  He wouldn't answer whether or not we'll see him in a future campaign.  He's just going to enjoy the time with his family now after a grueling 18 month long campaign.
