This victory was not a given. There were hills to climb and obstacles at almost every turn. It would have been easier to give up. But that’s not the America that you or I believe in.
We did it — Democrats took back the House!
Tonight we proved what I have believed for a long time: When Democrats stand united, we are unstoppable. I am so incredibly proud to be on this team.
This victory was not a given, not by a long shot. There were hills to climb and obstacles at almost every turn. It would have been easier to give up. But that’s not the America that you or I believe in. Those aren’t the values we stand for. That’s not the party we belong to.
Instead, we fought for every single vote, in every single state. We invested over $30 million directly into state parties and campaigns, rebuilt our ground game by hiring organizers across the country, and talked to each and every voter about what we believe this country can be.
It paid off: We didn’t just take back the House — we elected a historic slate of women, people of color, veterans, and members of the LGBTQ community. These leaders have changed the face of our party, and now they will change the face of our government. That’s progress in the truest sense of the word.
So tonight, let’s celebrate hard work and the promise that Democrats can win when we fight for our values.
Our work is far from done, but tonight I just want to say thank you. We did it.
All my best,
P.S. This election cycle, hundreds of thousands of grassroots donors took ownership of this party, and helped rebuild it the right way — from the grassroots up. We simply would not have made it this far without supporters like you.
