Keyes told Christian radio station WYLL AM Thursday that he's happy that over a million people voted for him despite what he called media distortions in the campaign.
He also said he was disappointed to learn how many "Republicans in name only" there were in Illinois.
Keyes says he didn't call Obama to congratulate him because that would have been a false gesture, and he says he'll continue to work with the people he met in Illinois to promote moral issues around the country.
