Election reaction from Sheppard, Barnhart

Sheppard and Barnhart react to election results

ROCHESTER, N.Y (WROC-TV) - Tuesday, Rachel Barnhart and James Sheppard were forced to concede.

Sheppard thanked supporters and said while he did not win, his team fought an important fight.

Barnhart told News 8, she felt like she was the underdog in the campaign and people did not know who she was.

"This was really what it was about, winning the primary. That did not happen, so as far as my run for mayor, it is done," Sheppard said.

"I was the underfunded candidate. I was always the candidate who was going to have an uphill battle and I think we proved we were legitimate," Barnhart said.
