SALISBURY, Md. - Former Salisbury Mayor, and current city councilman, Jim Ireton has conceded to democratic primary race in Maryland's 1st Congressional District to Joe Werner of Harford County.

Just before 11 p.m. on Tuesday night, Ireton's campaign manager told WBOC after speaking with the State Board of Elections and confirming the numbers, Ireton was conceding the race to Werner.

Werner is a Bel Air attorney that said he wanted to remove "big money" out of politics and wants to strengthen the working class in Maryland.

Ireton made this post on his website after calling Werner.

"What an incredible night.  With the help of 6 Eastern Shore counties, we took about 48% of the vote.  Though I couldn’t reach Joe Werner this evening, I endorse him and wish him the best of luck against Andy Harris in the fall.  My greatest appreciation goes out to our volunteers and my family for supporting me in this incredible task.  I look forward to continuing to serve my neighbors in Council District 4 here in Salisbury."

Werner will face incumbent republican Andy Harris in the November election.
