State Rep. Mack Bernard has conceded the Senate District 27 race to Democratic primary winner Jeff Clemens.
“I spoke to Sen. Jeff Clemens and congratulated him on a hard-fought race and I look forward to helping make sure we re-elect the president of the U.S. and make sure we get as many Democrats elected during this election,” Bernard said.
Bernard said he won’t appeal an appellate court decision upholding Clemens’s 17-vote margin in the August primary.
“It’s time for us to move forward and to move on to the November election,” he said.
