Sadler concedes US Senate race to Cruz

DALLAS (AP) - Democrat Paul Sadler has conceded the U.S. Senate race to Republican Ted Cruz, urging supporters to "be proud of the voters' choice."

The former state representative fell to Cruz by a wide margin and made his concession speech just before 9 p.m. Central time Tuesday.

He called any Election Day "a day of celebration" of democracy. He said "I am proud to stand in front of you tonight and say we have a new senator-elect, whose name is Ted Cruz, and I want us to be proud in our response to the voters' choice."
