Jackson concedes to Sheriff Grover Smith

In one of the most talked about and anticipated sheriff’s races in many years, Republican challenger Heath Jackson conceded to incumbent Grover Smith just after 9:20 tonight.

Jackson said he gained a lot of experience from the campaign asking his supporters to “be ready in 2014,” when he plans to run for the office again.
