Republican John James Concedes Senate Race to Incumbent Gary Peters

Republican John James has conceded to Democrat and incumbent Gary Peters in Michigan’s US Senate race on Tuesday.

James released a statement congratulating Peters on the victory.

“Today I believe it is the right thing to do to congratulate Sen. Peters,” James, a military veteran, said in a video posted on Twitter. “Senator, you may not remember this, but you and I actually shared a glass of scotch at a Pistons game a few years back. So, in the spirit of the holidays, there is a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label coming your way soon.”

James issued the statement just one day following the certification of the November election results by the Michigan Board of State Canvassers.

The Board of State Canvassers, which has two Republicans and two Democrats, confirmed the results on a 3-0 vote with one abstention. The decision was made by a four member board having two members of each political party. Republican board member Norman Shinkle, opted to abstain from the vote over objections to the process.
