DescriptionRepublican Sen. Conrad Burns said Tuesday that he has no regrets about his failed Senate re-election bid, briefly talking about his narrow loss in a testy exchange with Montana reporters at the U.S. Capitol.

It was one of Burns' first interviews since he conceded defeat in a written statement Nov. 9.

Burns rushed through the Capitol building as Democrats, including newly elected Montana Sen. Jon Tester, met nearby to determine their party's leadership. Burns' loss to Tester, along with several other Democratic victories last week, gave the party the 51 seats needed to take the majority when the next Congress convenes in January.

He stopped only briefly to chastise Montana reporters, saying he was "taken advantage of."

"Look you guys, I hate to tell you this, but I don't have anything to say, OK," he angrily told reporters from The Associated Press and Gazette State Bureau. "I want to thank you all for your good humor and everything ... you weren't very honest with me and the only way I can be honest with you is not to say anything."
