Ehrlich sails to victory in 8th Essex

(Continued)

"I've met a lot of people," she said of those days. After taking congratulations from one supporter, she noted that many have since joined to back her politically.

Meanwhile, Kozitza, in her first foray into politics, saw a bright side to the effort. "I'm proud that an unprecedented number of voters came out and checked the R box. My message did resonate ... but ultimately my supporters were outnumbered."

Kozitza said she called and offered congratulations to Ehrlich. "I told her it was an honor running against her."

On the other hand, she disputed a suggestion by Ehrlich that she had run a negative campaign. Kozitza insisted that she merely faulted her opponent's record and never resorted to any personal attacks.

While she first dismissed the idea when asked if she would consider another run for public office, Kozitza also expressed enthusiasm for remaining involved and finally concluded, "I wouldn't rule out another run."
