Thank you for all of your encouragement and support during our primary campaign. After the results were tallied this morning, I called Brad Schneider and congratulated him on his victory. 
These results should not deter us from continuing to fight on behalf of our neighbors and our communities.  It has been an honor and a privilege to work together. We know that there are many opportunities in our district to move forward, to improve our quality of life, and to advocate for those who do not have a strong voice. We have created important connections that I know will continue into the future, providing a framework for action.
As I tell my sons – always start with thank you! To all of those who were with us from the start and to those who joined us along the way, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support, encouragement and most of all for your trust in me. 
To my incredibly dedicated, energetic and fun campaign staff, you lent your talent and created this team, thank you for joining me on this journey. To the volunteers who showed up regularly and the thousands of volunteers who joined us along the way, making calls, braving the heat of the summer and the cold of the winter to spread our message, I can’t thank you enough! It has been an honor to work with each of you. 
Thank you all for your incredible support!
