Allred concedes in guv's race

Democratic candidate for governor Keith Allred has conceded to GOP Gov. Butch Otter in the governor's race. "I believe more strongly than ever in the Founding Fathers' wisdom that the best solutions are those that attract support across the lines that divide us," Allred said in a statement. "It's been my privilege to take that message to the people of Idaho." Allred, who called Otter at 12:36 a.m. to concede, said, "I wish Governor Otter all the best as he works to guide our state through a difficult time."

Meanwhile, GOP congressional hopeful Raul Labrador took the podium at Idaho GOP election night headquarters and said, "I want to go to bed. It's too early to call it." He thanked his supporters, and noted that he was outspent both in the primary race and in the general election contest. "I think they have shown what you can do with a little bit of money, a lot of energy and a lot of faith," Labrador said.
