In the post from Tuesday, Ekstrom talks about his campaign and said his regret from the race was that he was not “plain spoken and blunt” enough.

Ekstrom goes on to say he had many nice encounters with voters, but then calls some voters ‘village idiots’ and points to those here in Wichita Falls and in Amarillo.
