Dear Friends, Obviously, we’re disappointed in last night’s close results. It’s hard to take in the loss after all we’ve poured into this. That said, I’m deeply thankful to everyone who’s given their time, money, and support. (1/11)
Together, we helped shape the conversations in this race, and that positive impact will continue on. (2/11)
Shannon sent me this Teddy Roosevelt quote, and I agree he says it best: “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better... (3/11)
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again & again, because there is no effort without error & shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; (4/11)
who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,& who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold...(5/11)
and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

Together, we all dared greatly, and for that we should be proud.

The best news is that two strong campaigns gave it their all, and if we come together, the people have a real chance of flipping this district. (6/11)
I encourage everyone to get behind our nominee, @JulieForTX25. She’s smart, dedicated, and hard working, and she now needs our support against Roger Williams. You can visit her website here: (7/11)
Runoffs are incredibly hard as candidates work to differentiate, but in the end, she’s got a great progressive platform, and we must all unite to help her win the real fight in November. (8/11)
Once again, to our staff, our volunteers, our friends who cooked us dinner and walked our dog – thank you. I don’t think I can ever fully express my gratitude. To my family for their encouragement, I'm so grateful. (9/11)
I'm especially thankful to @ShannonPerriii, who poured her heart and soul into this campaign, giving every fiber of her being to spreading our message of hope. She was out knocking on doors until the very last minute yesterday. (10/11)
She has supported me in every way throughout this crazy challenge I took on.

For us, it’s time for a little break with our furry and feathery pets, but we’ll be back fighting the good fight soon.

In solidarity,
