JAMESTOWN – Local attorney Eddie Sundquist pledged to support the eventual U.S. Democratic Congressional candidate for the 23rd District on Tuesday shortly conceding the race in the 2018 Democratic Primary.
Max Della Pia currently leads Tracy Mitrano by 26 votes as all 451 voting areas have reported their results. The absentee votes, however, haven’t been counted yet.
“We’ve been supportive of whoever the Democratic Primary winner will be, right now it’s still too close to call,” said Sundquist.”It doesn’t preclude us from doing it again.”
The 29-year-old attorney said that he wouldn’t trade the year he spent campaigning for anything as he expressed gratitude for all of the volunteers and supporters he encountered.
“People that have given to the campaign and all of the people that have asked me to lead, I am very thankful,” said Sundquist.
Sundquist tallied 6.4 percent or 1,395 votes.
