Democrat David Garcia is conceding he lost Arizona’s race for state superintendent of public instruction.

Republican Diane Douglas holds a lead of approximately 17,000 votes with over 1.4 million votes counted as of late Monday and only 23,000 ballots still to be processed.

The Associated Press determined Sunday that Douglas had won the close race, and Garcia late Monday issued a statement in which he said he didn’t see a “path to victory.”

Garcia congratulated Douglas and also said he was proud of his campaign and the bipartisan support he had.
