Jessica King Concedes in District 18 Senate Race

CREATED Nov. 13, 2012

NBC26 Staff--Democrat Jessica King has conceded the district 18 State Senate race, under a canvassing since Election Day last week.

Both King and her Republican challenger, Rick Gudex received 50% of the vote with less than 600 votes separating the two.

King issued a statement Tuesday afternoon congratulating Gudex after the recount showed the Republican received more votes.

“Earlier today, I called Rick Gudex to thank him for a hard fought campaign, and to congratulate him on his victory last Tuesday. I would like to thank all of my supporters, and volunteers for their energy, and enthusiasm these past two years — working endlessly to help move Wisconsin forward."
