North Country Congressman Bill Owens and Vermont Congressman...
"I'm doing the best I can and we'll see what happens. Hard to say whether I have a good shot, I think I probably got as good a shot as anyone, if I were a betting man I might bet on the incumbent because the incumbent almost always wins.
Yeah my campaign wasn't always as aggressive as it could have been, but you know what, that's not me. And would I do something different, yeah, I would because now I've learned. And if I lose, then I won't be going to bed at night saying I wish I'd have tried, because I know I tried and I know I took the chance."
