Dunn concedes in AG’s race

Reagan Dunn conceded this morning in the state attorney general’s race.

Dunn said he had a “great conversation” with winner Bob Ferguson in which congratulated his fellow Metropolitan King County Council member. Ferguson leads with 53 percent of the vote counted through Wednesday.

Here’s his statement:

“This morning I congratulated Washington’s next attorney general, Bob Ferguson, on his victory in Tuesday’s election. It was a hard-fought campaign, and I am proud of the work we did.  It was a true honor to have had the opportunity to meet so many Washingtonians and visit so many communities across our state.

“I believe firmly that there is a time for campaigning and a time for governing.  Our nation and our country have many pressing problems that demand we all reach for solutions, and I intend to lead in that effort here in King County.  I believe Washington will be well-served by its next attorney general.  I will miss Bob’s service on the King County Council and look forward to working with him as he heads to Olympia.

“More importantly, Paige and I are so excited to be only a few short days away from welcoming the newest addition to the Dunn family.  I want to thank all my friends, supporters, family and colleagues for their well wishes.”

The Dunns are expecting a baby girl on Tuesday.
