Thank you to everyone across the Commonwealth who supported me in this race and thank you to the best campaign team and group of volunteers that anyone could ask for. I said at the beginning of this race that no one would knock on more doors or make more phone calls than we would and that is exactly what we did.
I cannot thank you enough for the countless hours you have put into this, and for working your heart out. I will never forget it.
One of the best things about this campaign, was the people I have met along the way. We ran to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to find their dream and follow it.
I hope everyone out there will keep fighting for what you believe in and the people you believe in. I know I will.
And I want to say this to all the young women out there - throw your hat in the ring. Lean in and follow your dreams. And if you don’t win the race or succeed the first time around - get back in the arena.
Thank you for the honor of allowing me to serve you for all these years.
