One day after the primary, Raja Krishnamoorthi has conceded the Democratic primary race for Illinois Comptroller.

"A little while ago, I called David Miller to congratulate him on becoming the Democratic nominee for Illinois State Comptroller," said Krishnamoorthi in an e-mail message to supporters. "This is not the outcome we had hoped for, and we all wish last night and today would have included a victory celebration. Indeed, we came within a whisker of winning."

By late Wednesday evening, Miller had widened his lead to over 8,300 votes.

"I commend both Raja and Clint for running great, positive campaigns – they ran for the right reasons," said Miller in an e-mailed statement. "We all share the same heartfelt desire to overcome the challenges before us, and we all seek better transparency and accountability for taxpayers."

Miller will face GOP nominee Judy Baar Topinka in the general election.
