Bill Sherman concedes

Posted by David Postman

Democrat Bill Sherman called County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg yesterday, conceded the race and congratulated the Republican. Sherman issued a statement this morning that included this:

"Dan ran a smart and effective campaign, and his message of carrying on the legacy of Norm Maleng clearly resonated with voters. I have said all along that he is a decent man, and I still believe that to be the case. I wish him well as the newly elected King County prosecutor, and I am sure he will continue to do a good job filling the shoes of the beloved and respected Maleng, whose tragic passing affected all of us deeply.

"Despite the final outcome, I am proud of the race we have run. Through the campaign I strived to be honest and forthcoming about who I am, what I believe and what I had to offer the people of King County. In the end it was up to the voters to decide, and they chose to go in a different direction. I respect that decision."
