Attorney General Eric Schmitt will be the Republican nominee for Missouri’s U.S. Senate seat.

Schmitt delivered a victory speech in St. Louis Tuesday night:

In a very early concession, fellow primary candidate, Congressman Billy Long took to Twitter to congratulate Attorney General Eric Schmitt on his victory on the hotly contested U.S. Senate race in Missouri.

Long tweeted his full support toward Schmitt for the U.S. Senate in the upcoming general election in November against the other party nominees.
