Norm Dicks has just spoken to the crowd, acknowledging John McCain’s
concession of the presidency.
“I feel so sorry for John McCain,” Dicks noted at the beginning of his speech. The crowd responded with boos at the mention of McCain.
Applause followed as Dicks noted his own probable win, announcing
his excitement to begin his 17th term.
Dicks, the current 6th Congressional District Congressman, congratulated the hard work of Pierce County’s Democrats in this election.
“I know we’ve done everything we can” to elect winner Barack Obama and Gov. Chris Gregoire. “In the future, we’ve got to keep working to support Barack Obama and his agenda as the new president of the United States,” Dicks said.
