Dan Hynes ended his Democratic governor campaign today, calling Gov. Pat Quinn and pledging his support in the fall campaign.

“Well, the people have spoken, and the votes have been counted. And I”m here to report that we rose up but fell just a little short,” Hynes said at a news conference at his River North campaign headquarters. “And if democracy means anything, it means that the campaign with more votes wins.”

“We did the right thing. Made sure all the votes are counted and now we know for sure that it wasn’t us,” Hynes said. “And rather than contest or demand anything further, let’s do the right thing again.”
