BILLINGS- Congressman Denny Rehberg conceded the U.S. Senate race to Senator Jon Tester Wednesday morning after late returns showed the incumbent Senator would win re-election.
Minutes before Tester addressed supporters to declare victory, Rehberg's campaign released the following statement:
"Jan and I are tremendously and eternally grateful for the support, kind words and prayers we have received from countless Montanans. It has been an honor to serve the people of Montana. The voters of our state have spoken, and I respect their decision. Senator Tester and I share an abiding love for Montana and America, a value which transcends political party or disagreements on matters of policy. I congratulate Jon on his victory in this hard-fought campaign."
