ROCKWALL, Texas (AP) — U.S. Rep. Ralph Hall says he's not sad that he lost his last campaign for re-election to Congress, and says he's not done with his work either.

The 91-year-old Hall 's three decades in Congress will end this year after losing in the Republican primary runoff to John Ratcliffe, who successfully argued voters in North Texas needed a new voice in Congress.

Surrounded by about 50 supporters in Rockwall, Hall said he couldn't be unhappy thanks to the people around him.

He acknowledged that he "got whipped and got beat," and that he wasn't surprised.

He said he planned to fly back to Washington Wednesday morning and return to work.
