T.J. Donovan Concedes Attorney General's Race to Sorrell

Posted By on Wed, Aug 29, 2012 at 11:25 AM

Update: Donovan addressed reporters in Battery Park at 11:30. He said he had "absolutely no regrets" about the campaign and "left nothing on the table." Donovan said he would not request a recount.

"There is no reason to prolong this. I don't think a recount is warranted. I don't want to do that to the party."

With his wife, mother and sisters at his side, Donovan conceded, "I lost, I accept the results and congratulate Bill Sorrell. This was a campaign that educated many Vermonters about how important this office is."

Asked about his future, Donovan said, "I'm not thinking about the future, I'm thinking about all the work I need to do at home."
