Douglas Tuman, a crypto fanatic and host of the Monero Speak podcast, has misplaced in his bid to symbolize New York’s 4th District in the US Congress.

In line with election results from The Related Press, Tuman, a Republican, obtained 134,243 votes to incumbent Democrat Kathleen Rice’s 147,580 in New York’s 4th District, which incorporates elements of central and southern Nassau County. Rice has served as a member of the U.S. Home of Representatives since 2015.

The Monero (XMR) podcaster first announced his intentions to run for Congress in March, stating that he was operating on a platform “to enhance consultant democracy and cash.” Tuman said he was keen to just accept XMR and different crypto donations for his marketing campaign to create a “extra professional crypto” U.S. authorities.

“With the crypto neighborhood behind me we are able to in all probability get Monero nationwide consideration as free speech cash,” said the congressional candidate. “Monero aligns with the beliefs America was based upon. It’s America 2.0 — a protocol to protect liberty within the digital age.”
