Marr concedes to Baumgartner

Democrat state Sen. Chris Marr made up some ground in Wednesday's counting against Republican Michael Baumgartner, but Marr said it won't be enough.

Marr conceded defeat a few moments ago in an interview with KHQ.

His campaign just released this statement:

"No matter the outcome of this election, our hopes and aspirations have not changed. Our belief in the people of Washington and this great city has not diminished. Our responsibility to offer ideas instead of attacks and compromise instead of gridlock has not gone away. Our dedication to serve our community has not waivered.  I ask all of my supporters to join me in congratulating State Senator-elect Michael Baumgartner and committing to work with him to advance the common interests of the citizens of Spokane and the Sixth Legislative District."
