Greg Vital concedes to Todd Gardenhire in 10th District


by Chris Carroll

Greg Vital has conceded the District 10 state Senate Republican primary to Todd Gardenhire.

The decision came after Vital mulled over the possibility of asking for a recount.

“Although it was a very close race, the election is over,” Vital said in a statement.

At different times, unofficial vote counts had the margin as 15 and 40 votes out of about 16,000 cast in Bradley and Hamilton counties. A few provisional ballots were added to the total Monday, but they weren’t expected to change the outcome of the race.

Gardenhire will face District 10 Democratic candidate Andrae McGary in the Nov. 6 general election.
