COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO)— Earlier today in a statement made on her official Facebook campaign site, Lisa Ellis reflected on the midterm elections and formally conceded from the South Carolina Superintendent of Education race.

She thanked supporters and stated that the fight for public education is not over.

“Thank you to everyone who has put in the work on this campaign, who has worked endless hours to speak with voters, plan events, and speak out online. I called my opponent this morning to congratulate her on a well-run race. While the results are not what we wanted, we know we made a huge impact on this state.”

“We will continue to stay persistent and continue to fight for every student to have a high-quality education in our state. We will continue to fight for teachers, school staff, administrators, and everyone involved in our school systems. We have mobilized voters across our state who previously did not feel their voice mattered; we have given teachers and families a choice in who represents them and empowered them to use their voice. We will continue to fight, and I hope that all of us have an opportunity to reflect on and celebrate the accomplishments we have made.”
