Republican Concedes Primary to Vrdolyak

From United Press International

Endorsed Republican mayoral contender Herbert Sohn on Friday conceded the Feb. 28 primary to write-in challenger Edward R. Vrdolyak, but he declined to personally endorse the former Democratic Party chairman.

Vrdolyak, who jumped parties less than two years ago, was declared the winner Thursday, based on unofficial returns. Sohn conceded after a spot check of returns Friday failed to turn up a winning margin for him or a basis on which to contest the election.
