"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.

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."
