Democratic Lt. Gov. Daniel Mongiardo conceded in the U.S. Senate race at 10:15 p.m., saying that he had called Attorney General Jack Conway to congratulate him on a “very tough and well-fought” campaign. His wife Allison, blinked back tears as she held their infant daughter.
However, Mongiardo would not say whether he will help Conway in the fall campaign against Republican nominee Rand Paul of Bowling Green.
I”m going to sleep … get up in the morning, make some coffee and figure out what’s next,” he said.
He blamed the loss on last minute negative campaigning by Conway and a lack of funding. “We didn’t have the money,” he said. “The money in our party went to the other side.”
