Vanquished Va. Lt. Gov. candidate stirs GOP crowd

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Republican E.W. Jackson sounded anything but a loser as he rallied a downcast crowd at GOP election headquarters after losing the race for Virginia's lieutenant governor.

Saying he was "unbroken, unbowed," the lawyer-turned-preached gave a stirring address Tuesday night in Richmond to supporters after his loss to Democrat Ralph Northam.

The 61-year-old political novice energized a crowd that was downcast by the defeat of its Republican nominee for governor, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.

Asked as he left the stage if this was a concession, Jackson said it was "motivational, inspirational" speech.
