By now you’ve probably heard that things did not go our way last night. I’ve congratulated Tina Kotek on her victory and told her we’ll work hard for the future our kids deserve. Both of us care deeply about Oregon, and we promised to keep in touch.

I am so grateful to you for your support. You’ve been behind us from day one of the campaign, and together we brought so many critical issues to the forefront of Oregon politics. The urgent need to address the homelessness crisis; rising gun violence; and helping our students regain the ground lost during the pandemic.

It’s important that we continue to raise our voices and work for the Oregonians who are counting on us. Everything we care about is on the line in this election – from reproductive rights to economic opportunity to fighting climate change. It’s critical that we come together and move forward toward the future we want and that our kids need.

Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for me and my campaign. We couldn’t have done any of this without you. And I hope you will keep in touch, because we still have lots to do together.

Thank you,
