Eugene Yu: 'I have no regrets'

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Eugene Yu was one of five contenders in the GOP primary for the U.S. 12th Congressional district seat. 

Yu finished in second place with nearly 17 percent of the votes but still far from winner Rick Allen's 54 percent.

We caught up with Yu at his watch party on Tuesday. He said he was satisfied with the race.

"I don't have any regrets and I did the best I can," Yu said. "I wish for whoever is nominated to win in the general election."

Rick Allen, the winner of the Republican primary, will face off incumbent John Barrow for the seat in November.

Yu first entered the Senate race, but switched to the 12th District only after a few months.
