Summary
Ted Dalton, Virginia's Republican candidate for governor in 1953, concedes the election to his opponent, Thomas B,. Stanley, the Democratic and Byrd Organization candidate. He congratulates Stanley, and expresses hope that his campaign helped establish a two-party system in Virginia and move Virginia forward in a progressive manner. The last minute of the recording (2:53-4:00) contains a phone interview between George Passage, WRVA news broadcaster, and Harry F. Byrd, Sr., United States senator, concerning Stanley's victory. Byrd answers that he was not surprised by Stanley's victory, but no comment to Passage's other questions. The recording of Byrd is faint and barely audible. The recording also includes a few sound bytes of a radio newsroom in action during an election night
