MADISON, Wis. -

Madison School Board candidate Wayne Strong has conceded the race to Dean Loumos a week after the spring election.

Strong told News 3 he decided the 278-vote margin was too large to ask for a recount.

Strong thanked his supporters and said the 18,000 votes he received was "nothing to sneeze at." He said he will consider running again for the school board in the future.
