With the Associated Press declaring him the winner, Dr. Ami Bera tells FOX40 in an interview Thursday that he’s honored to serve the people of California’s 7th Congressional District.
“It is such a privilege to work with so many of my neighbors and the folks in the community. This is not my victory, this is our victory,” Bera said in a phone interview.
Bera is currently in Washington, D.C. for congressional “freshman orientation.” Oddly enough, the orientation is overseen by Bera’s republican opponent, Rep. Dan Lungren.
The campaign manager for Lungren did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but, in a short interview with the AP, the Lungren campaign announced it is not conceding.
