Concessions and Non-Concessions by Virginia Candidates for U.S. Senate, U.S. House

The best ones so far are from Republicans Daniel Gade, and Scott Taylor, Democrats Qasim Rashid and Dr. Cameron Webb. Then there are the other ones...


See below for concession statements…and NON-concession statements from losing Virginia candidates for the U.S. Senate and U.S. House. There are a few good ones, and then there are…uh, the others. Check ’em out.

A strong concession statement from Republican U.S. Senate candidate Daniel Gade

A wholly appropriate and normal concession statement from VA01 Democratic nominee Qasim Rashid.

A very classy concession statement, by a classy person, Dr. Cameron Webb (D) in VA05.

Definitely a concession, wishing Rep. Elaine Luria (D-VA02) success, while also taking a shot at what he calls “shameful smears” in the race, from former Rep. Scott Taylor (R) in VA02

Here’s a statement from VA06 Dem nominee Nicholas Betts thanking people for supporting his campaign…


Here’s a concession statement from the Republican candidate in VA03, who congratulates Rep. Bobby Scott (D), followed by his current efforts to call the election into question…

Then we have Nick Freitas (R)’s bizarre, non-concession “concession” statement in VA07

UPDATED: Definitely NOT a concession…

Definitely NOT a concession here from the Republican in VA11…

And then there’s this from the Republican candidate in VA-10

And no concession, apparently, from the Republican candidate in VA04

I’m not seeing anything in VA08, and Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-VA09) didn’t have an opponent.
