It’s Official! Allen Concedes, Democrats Control Congress!

NBC reports Sen. George Allen today conceded the Virginia race to Democrat Jim Webb, declining to push for a recount in a tight Senate race that was the last to be decided.

“I respect their decision,” Allen said of Virginia voters during a speech to supporters. “I called to congratulate Jim Webb and his team.”

In a rout once considered almost inconceivable, Democrats won control of the Senate and thus both Houses of Congress after 12 years of near-domination by the Republican Party.

In Montana, the other Senate race that had not been decided on election night, Republican Sen. Conrad Burns earlier Thursday conceded to Democrat Jon Tester.
