Dean Young Unforgiving in Loss to Byrne

Dean Young Unforgiving in Loss to Byrne

Posted: Updated:
FOLEY, Alabama -

An anxious night as Dean Young watched the numbers trickle in.

Even as he cast his ballot in Orange Beach he knew this was going to be a close one. The numbers went back and forth most of the night until finally Bradley Byrne began pulling away prompting Young's concession just before 10 o'clock Tuesday night. "Listen," he told about a hundred supporters gathered to watch the returns. "It looks like we came up a little short on our goal tonight."

Young says big money was his undoing. "What they saw tonight was a band of people who didn't have much money they had the will to continue and the heart to scare them to death."

Traditionally the candidates come together at the end of a hotly contested campaign but that won't happen here.

"I cannot bring myself to vote for someone who would mislead the people of south Alabama like Bradley Byrne has," Young said. "He should be ashamed of what he's done. He should be and therefore you reap what you sew and that will follow him."
