Clint Didier not conceding Senate race

Clint Didier says he’s not giving up.

Despite polling at only 12 percent in early returns, to Patty Murray’s 46 percent, and Dino Rossi’s 34 percent, the former Redskins tight end told me in an interview he would wait until morning for any decision on conceding.

Why? Well, are you ready for some football … metaphors?

“I’m not giving up in this until the other 50 percent (of votes) are counted,” he said. “That’s like halftime of a football game.”

In his NFL days, “I never gave up until the last second’s off the clock,” he said.

“There’s a Hail Mary out there, I think,” he added.

  1. And apparently he’s not giving up on football analogies either. How exactly does one throw a political hail mary after the ballots have been cast?
