Tuesday night was a night I will never forget. It was the culmination of your support and hard work. Thank you – YOU who supported our campaign, who made more than 200,000 phone calls and knocked on tens of thousands of doors, spread the word to your friends, family and neighbors to vote and made your voices heard. This would not be possible without you, and I am beyond grateful.
This primary race has been long, unpredictable and even a bit contentious at times. But at the end of the day we are all Americans. As Americans we need to come together to restore our system of government, because frankly Washington is broken. Times are tough now. The middle class is struggling. Our families need jobs. Our kids need the opportunity for a quality education. Our manufacturers need a level playing field. And our seniors need to know that after a lifetime or hard work, the Medicare and Social Security benefits they've earned will be there for them. But Washington has become out of touch with these concerns. There is too much bickering and finger pointing and not enough accountability and commonsense solutions.
While Washington may be stalling, we're not. People like us are fed up with it, and we're getting involved.
In less than three months, we have another tough election. But just as our hard work brought home a win on Tuesday, our hard work will bring home a win in November. I know we can do it. Thank you again for everything you've done to get us this far. Let's finally bring some common sense to Washington.
Thank you for everything you do,
