The long campaign for reelection to the U.S Senate comes to an end for Senator Jim Talent as he becomes another Republican casualty of what was a very successful Election Day for Democrats across the country. In his concession speech, Talent said he congratulated the Senator-elect, Claire McCaskill, and he thanked all those who worked hard on his campaign. Talent went on to thank God for all that has happened in his life. He told supporters he had made up his mind he was going to thank God, regardless of what happened on Election Day. Talent says he is happy to have served in Congress and in the Senate, and cherishes the freiendships he has made in public life.
