Conger left a job as a state lawmaker to run for the U.S. Senate.

 

Does he regret that decision? 

 

"I feel very fortunate to have been able to do this, even though we lost.  I got over 90 thousand Republicans to vote for me and for that I'm honored.  It also took a long time, a lot of work and invovled sacrifice and at times it was a nasty primary fight."

 

Conger acknowledges losing isn't easy, but he says he wouldn't do anything differently, except try to avoid the nasty campaigning.

 

"But if I could have chagned that and had it made more about the issues providing voters with our positions.  I wouldn't change anything about running or I wouldn't change what we tried to do and that was about as good as you can get, win or lose."

 

Conger says he has no plans to run for public office again anytime soon -- but will continue as a lawyer at a local firm and looks forward to spending more time with his family.
