Sen. Elizabeth Dole, Woman's College '58, just finished delivering her concession speech in Salisbury, N.C. She spoke about how she was not a politician "by choice" and never felt completely comfortable fraternizing with the boys in the cloak room. She said she was disappointed by the negative tone of her race against state Sen. Kay Hagan of Greensboro, but she congratulated the Democrat on her victory.
"Sen. Dole can rest with great assurance as she returns to her civilian life, a normal life, that she has served her country and her fellow man very well," said N.C. Republican Party Chairman Linda Daves to the crowd here after the speech.
