ABC News has learned former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee will concede to Republican nomination rival Senator John McCain, R-Ariz.
But there is no doubt the longshot-turned-contender left his mark on the Republican race.
Calling his White House bid the "journey of a lifetime", Huckabee spoke Tuesday night from Irving, TX commending McCain on an "honorable campaign" and emphasizing his commitment to the Republican party in the fight to the November election.
"We stayed in until the race was over. We kept the faith, that for me has been the most important goal of all," Huckabee said, standing with his wife on stage at the Four Seasons Hotel. " I'd rather lose the election than lose the principles that got me into politics in the first place."
McCain visits President Bush at the White House Wednesday.
