Greene County State's Attorney Matt Goetten has conceded the Democratic Party primary election for Congress in the new 13th district. the State Board of Elections Friday released final vote tallies certifying Bloomington Doctor David Gill as the winner in a close fought contest. According to the board, the final margin was 163 votes out of nearly 31,000 cast. Gill won 50.26% to Goetten's 49.74%. Gill has been speaking like the winner for some time. Goetten gave up saying he wishes Gill the best of luck in taking on what he calls the Republicans' failed agenda that caters to special interests and the wealthy and jeopardizes the American way of life.
