Gerald Fox III, Eva Maldonado, State Representative 146th District

Election Day 2012

Eva Maldonado concede victory to incumbent Gerald Fox III Tuesday evening, saying she'd be "be watching him."

"It's disheartening, especially because, during all the door-knocking I participated in, so many people told me they didn't even know who their representative was," Maldonado said. "I ran because I wanted to see a more balanced government. I did everything I could. I'll just have to go bigger next time around."

Fox said it's never over until it's over, but he said he felt somewhat confident his past efforts would speak for themselves.

"I felt confident in my record and from talking to people that I had the support of the community," Fox said. "Eva was standing out there all day with her beautiful family, she ran a great campaign and I wish her all the best."
