Schultz concedes the 21st House District to Cauthorn

10:00 p.m.

Democrat Kelly Schultz ended her watch party early tonight after conceding to Republican John Cauthorn.

“I’m really proud of the race that we ran. It was a rather toxic environment. I really want to thank the volunteers and people who voted,” said Schultz.

“I am disappointed that I lost but tomorrow I’m going to sleep in and go to work,” said Schultz.

There were 33 supporters at the party and many started to leave around 9:00 p.m. One supporter hugged Schultz before she left and said, “there is always next year.”

Schultz laughed and said, “no.”
