Senate Democrats Lose Another Seat
November 30th, 2010

Sen. Antoine Thompson seems to have officially conceded to his Republican challenger Mark Grisanti. The Senate Democrats released this statement:

I thank the residents of the 60th Senatorial District for allowing me to serve them for four years a duty that I took very seriously and an experience for which I am extremely grateful.

I thank the many community partners who Ive had the pleasure of working with side-by-side for a better 60th District. Together, we accomplished monumental successes in the areas of economic development, education and the environment.

While Thompson did not use the word “concede” Senate Democrats say the race is over and Republicans have taken it as such.

Thompson was one of three incumbent Democrats trying to hold on to their seats after tough races. With Thompson’s concession the Democrats can only hope to deadlock the chamber by winning the recounts in the other two outstanding races. Prospects for that seem unlikely.
