What started as a hopeful night, ended in disappointment for the GOP camp.  David Williams and Richie Farmer were easily defeated Tuesday night.  Williams worked the crowd and thanked supporters after conceding to incumbent Governor Steve Beshear.  He says he wished he would've been more popular but still believes in his plan.

     "We've had a long year.  We've had a real plan for real jobs.  We've had an agenda to protect the unborn.  The agenda is a correct agenda.," explains Williams.

     And the current state Senate President says he's now looking ahead and plans to meet with Governor Beshear in the coming days.

     "Kentucky has dire circumstances as far as our financial situation.  We still have 9.7 % unemployment.  We have to work together because I'm not going to be satisfied and the members of the senate that are on this stage are not going to be satisfied until every Kentuckian who wants a job, has an opportunity to be all he or she can be," says Williams.

     His running mate, current AG Commissioner, Farmer is also focusing on the future.

     "We can put partisan politics aside and, as I've said throughout this year on the campaign trail, it's time to work try to work together and make Kentucky a better place," comments Farmer.

     Williams says it won't be easy.

     "I'm a better man for this experience and  I want to work with all the folks who will work with us to make sure we have a better Kentucky," explains Williams.
