Larry Grooms posted this statement on his Facebook page:
By a voting margin of less than 1%, my plans to represent South Carolina's 1st Congressional District ended last night.
In 1 Thessalonians 5, we learn to give thanks in all things. While there is great disappointment for coming so very close in such an incredibly difficult election, there is cause to give thanks and rejoice.
My family, friends, supporters and volunteers sacrificed more for me than I will ever be able to repay. The kindness and generosity of those who believe in my fight for freedom and liberty is overwhelming and I am truly grateful.
I am truly a blessed man.
