Shays Concedes to McMahon [Photos]

The former Congressman vowed to support McMahon's U.S. Senate campaign.


Chris Shays said in his concession speech that he did not raise enough money but enjoyed the campaign and would support Linda McMahon. He said his and McMahon's beliefs are "not far apart." 

Asked if he would recant contrary statements he made earlier in his campaign, he said, "I do not withdraw any comment that I made."

"I did not respect how she conducted the race but her position and my positions are not far apart. She won. I lost. This is her race and she'll have my vote," Shays said of McMahon..
