I want to thank you for building this campaign with us. This was my first time running for office, and it was truly magical in many ways. While we did not win the race, we gained tremendous experience, made multitudinous friends, and hit so many high notes I cannot list them all.
I could not have done—would not have done—this without you. Thank you for your support, your time, your energy, your encouragement, and your engagement. Please see this as a beginning, not as an end, and I hope you’ll come along with me for another ride as we expand politics as we know it and get more people involved in the process.
