Democrat John Yarmuth will keep his Third District Congressional seat with Tuesday’s win over Republican challenger Todd Lally.

In his concession speech, Lally told supporters that they may have lost this race, but they haven’t lost the war.

“All across America as the polls close Republicans are going to close in on that magical number of 39. Tonight Nancy Pelosi will retire,” he said.

Lally says he called Yarmuth and thanked him for not giving in to negative campaigning. He also told supporters that he will run for office again at some point in the future.
