Gray concedes to McGrath in 6th Congressional Democratic race

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)- When Jim Gray took the stage in Lexington to concede the race, he still walked on to cheers from supporters.

ABC 36’s Veronica Jean Seltzer was at Jim Gray’s watch party and says that in his speech, he congratulated McGrath and said he thinks Rep. Barr is in for the fight of his life.

Gray says “I am ready to help Amy and I want all of you to join me. It’s time for us to stand with Amy and continue this effort to send her to Washington.”

Gray also thanked the LGBTQ community for always supporting him. He is Lexington’s first gay mayor, but after his term ends he will be without a job in politics.
