Republican Daniel Gade has conceded the Senate race to incumbent Sen. Mark Warner.

“I will never stop fighting for our country and for the Constitution which sustains it, but this race is over,” Gade posted on his official campaign website. “I concede and call on all of my supporters to recognize state and federal results with peace and unity.”

Warner won a third term in the U.S. Senate. He is a top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, was governor of Virginia from 2002 to 2006.

Unofficial returns from the Virginia Department of Elections Wednesday morning showed Warner with 2,332,363 votes (55.63%); Gade with 1,856,394 (44.28%) — 2,580 of 2,585 precincts reporting.

Gade previously taught at West Point and now teaches at American University. He’s a veteran – Army – who lost a leg after being injured in Iraq in 2005.

“No matter the results of the Presidential election, in particular, it is paramount that every American realize that we still live in the greatest country on earth, and to work towards ‘liberty and justice for all,’” Gade wrote.
