Thank goodness, no matter what happens to Congress after today, the room just got a little brighter:
Not even two hours after the polls closed, Congressman Alan Grayson says things didn't work out.
Grayson said he now calls on Webster to alleviate Americans pain.
He said this loss should come as no surprise, as the victory two years ago was a struggle.
Grayson said before the polls even opened, Democrats were behind. After absentee and early voting, Republicans had outvoted by 11,000. He needed a massive Democratic turnout to win and that didn't happen.
"Listen, it's a wave year,” Grayson said. “There are Democrats all over the country that are losing right now and losing big. There’s no reason why Florida should be any different from that. I'm a Democrat. I needed Democrats to vote in order to win."
Grayson said now he will concentrate on being a better husband and father.
Webster issued the following statement after Grayson's concession Tuesday.
"This is a new day for our Country and I am thankful to be a part of it. This is a huge victory for people who are tired of the politics of personal destruction. We ran a positive campaign against a broken system. Now it's time to begin the work of fixing it."
