To all those who supported my candidacy or gave it full consideration, I sincerely thank you for your faith in me and for allowing me to meet you in your communities. I am proud of the positive, issues-oriented campaign we ran and the focus we brought on today’s most serious issues — quality, affordable healthcare for every citizen, improving public education, and closing the wealth gap for the poor, working poor, and middle class. We made a difference in the debate of these issues and I will not forget the faces and the voices that supported me in this effort.
This was a magical summer in so many ways; a rebirth of spirit for me and for the Alabama Democratic Party. It does not have to end! Let’s turn our attention to keeping that momentum going strong and working together to get Doug Jones elected this coming December!
