Oberstar concedes; says he wants a public service role
Congressman Jim Oberstar conceded defeat to opponent Chip Cravaack, ending his 36-year run in Congress.
Oberstar, speaking at his office in the Gerald Heaney Federal Building in Duluth, said it wasn't "any one thing" that contributed to his loss, but added that had voter turnout been higher, "the result may have been different."
