Democrat Susanna Gibson conceded her race to represent Virginia’s 57th House of Delegates district after a sex video surfaced and Republican David Owens defeated her. It remains unclear if Gibson will ever rebound from the scandal.

Gibson emphasized the importance of fighting for women’s bodily autonomy and better healthcare.

“The fight to protect women’s bodily autonomy, to improve our children’s education, and to ensure better healthcare for all is too important. We can’t let one setback deter us,” Gibson wrote. (Trending: Joe Biden Emailed Hunter’s Business Associates 54 Times)

“I won’t give up. We can’t give up. I look forward to fighting alongside each and every one of you in the future.”

“My political opponents and their Republican allies have proven they’re willing to commit a sex crime to attack me and my family because there’s no line they won’t cross to silence women when they speak up,” Gibson said.

The video controversy and Republican attacks were highlighted in the campaign, with Owens ultimately declaring victory.

“It’s my honor to be elected Delegate in HD-57 last night,” Owens wrote.

“I will begin work immediately to provide the unity, common-sense leadership, and responsive service that I promised.”
