Feingold: "Being your senator has been the greatest honor of my life"

U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Middleton, has called Republican Ron Johnson of Oshkosh to concede the race.

"The people of Wisconsin have spoken and I respect their decision," Feingold told a boisterous crowd. "I wished him well as our senator, and I also offered my help and the help of my staff in any transition."

Feingold told the supporters gathered at his Middleton party, "Being your senator has been the greatest honor of my life.

"I've enjoyed working with you and feel we did many good things together and I thank Wisconsin for this great privilege I have received."

"No one has ever had such a strong foundation, it gave me my backbone, you gave me my backbone," Feingold said.

"So to all of you in the words of, who else, Bob Dylan, 'But my heart is not weary, it's light and free, I've got nothing but affection for those who have sailed with me.'"

"I hope and I intend to continue to work with all of you in the future as much as possible, so it's on to the next life, it's on to the next battle, it's on to 2012, and it is on to our next adventure. Forward!"
