Republican Joseph Dillon Thursday conceded the race for the 37th District to Democratic state Senator George Latimer. Dillon had 48 percent of the votes and Latimer, 52%, with absentee ballots yet to be counted. Dillon called to congratulate Latimer for a spirited campaign, and lauded Latimer's joining him in an extensive number of debates. Dillon, who has a consulting practice, served as senior advisor and chief of staff in the Treasury Department under President George W. Bush.
