Hayworth concedes defeat to Maloney

FISHKILL – Congresswoman Nan Hayworth has conceded defeat to Sean Patrick Maloney.

In an emailed message to supporters on Wednesday, the day after Maloney beat her, she wrote, “It is in that spirit of love of country that I’ll now concentrate on helping our new representative-elect, Sean Patrick Maloney, have a smooth transition for the sake of our constituents.”

After the votes were tallied late Tuesday night, Hayworth said there were absentee ballots to be counted and not every election district was tallied.

But, in her note on Wednesday, Hayworth said the election “is over, and while the results didn’t go our way, nobody could’ve fought harder or more honorably than our team.”

She said she would “continue to do all I can to serve the cause of individual liberty and opportunity that is uniquely American.”

Hayworth was elected two years ago when she defeated then-incumbent John Hall.
