Ortiz Jones concedes race to Congressman Hurd

SAN ANTONIO, TX (CBS7) -- Congressional candidate Gina Ortiz Jones conceded her race today with Republican Congressman Will Hurd.

After election results were canvassed in Medina County this morning and across the district since election day, she released this statement:

“Our campaign was based on the belief that everyone is equal - equally deserving to be heard at the ballot box and served in our communities. We worked hard to make this a reality, understanding this is the only path toward the more perfect union that our founders envisioned.

“While we came up short this time, we ran a race of which we can be proud. I remain committed to serving my community and country, and I wish Will Hurd the courage to fight for TX-23 in the way in which our district deserves.”
