Broward County Commissioner Kristin Jacobs lost last night in the Congressional primary.
She was hoping to become the Democratic nominee for District 22, which covers Broward and Palm Beach counties. The seat was left vacant when Republican Rep. Allen West changed districts.
During her concession speech, Jacobs thanked the crowd of about 50 for believing in her.
"I'm so blessed to have been a part of it," Jacobs said. "I think it was the most wonderful thing I've ever tried to do, and I'm sad about not winning but energized by the future."
