Mike Powell, Lib Dem candidate, said on arrival at the count tonight that he is "feeling tired" after "a long campaign".
He said there had been a lot of positives on the streets and not many negatives.
Mr Powell added: "It's just a case of seeing what decision has been made on the ballot. It's difficult after five years in a coalition government. Difficult decisions have been made and a lot of pain inflicted, not because we wanted to do it but because it needed to be done."
When asked about his expectations for tonight's result, he said: "I'm not going to second-guess the count. I imagine we're going to take a hit. We're nothing if not resilient in the Valleys. We'll pick ourselves up tomorrow, dust ourselves down and start again."
