Jack Bergman is headed to Washington.

Democratic nominee Lon Johnson conceded to Jack Bergman for the 1st Congressional District.

The district has been in Republican control since 2011 when Dan Benishek was voted in.

Johnson addressed the crowd at the Park Place Hotel before conceding his campaign.

“It’s clear that the race isn’t going in our direction. It’s going in Jack’s and I think we have a responsibility to come together now. Jack has won this race and I wish him good will,” says Lon Johnson.
