Democrat Dan Onorato conceded to Republican Tom Corbett in Pennsylvania’s gubernatorial race just after 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.

“I called Tom Corbett and congratulated him. I'm one of the luckiest guys in the world,” Onorato said to a crowd of supporters in Pittsburgh. “It's been a great road.”

Onorato will go back to Allegheny County, where he is county executive.

He thanked his volunteers and family.

“We fought the battle. We came up a little short today, but our voice was heard,” he said.
