Thank you, everyone!

When we started out all those months ago, no one thought we’d get anywhere. However, with unending hard work, a dedicated campaign team, and the finest crew of volunteers anyone could ask for, we went from an obscure campaign making the rounds in the dead of winter, to upstart contender, to the chosen nominee of three parties, to Young Gun, and finally to Congresswoman-elect!

To those who pitched in, in any capacity, I cannot thank you enough for your time, your trust, and your friendship. No candidate can ever win alone, and you all were instrumental in this victory: it belongs to all of us. To those who supported my opponent, rest assured I will be listening to all of my constituents, yourselves included. That is one of the most important duties a Representative has, and I won’t forget it.

Now, however, is truly the time to roll up our sleeves, because now the real hard work starts! Our country urgently needs our help, and I intend to do my part to make sure she gets it. I expect to hear from all of you, both in Washington and at home. I promise you that I’m up to the challenge, and I’m ready and eager to take it on.

Let’s get started!
