TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - When the election results rolled in, candidates took to social media to share their thoughts and feelings.

WTXL ABC 27's Jada Williams was live in the studio Wednesday morning to tell how candidates are reflecting on their hard fought races.

Candidates quickly reached out to all of their supporters with social media.

Let's start with Dustin Daniels, who took to Facebook after losing the bid for Tallahassee mayor to John Dailey.

Referencing an Irish story about battle scars, he said "some battles are worth fighting if you believe enough in them, even if all you have in the end are scars."

Meanwhile, Cara Fleischer celebrated her victory as the next Leon County Soil and Water Commissioner with a cake and a note that not all campaigns need big funds to win.
