Friends, it looks like we have been narrowly defeated. I'm honored to have had the chance to run to represent the people of the 35th District. We went toe to toe with giants and had them on their heels but in the end it wasn't enough. I am extremely proud of what we were able to accomplish, the message we were able to promote, and the conversation we started in the 35th District. Our campaign, with very little resources, managed to do everything we could and we left nothing on the table. I've never met a group of people with so much heart and passion about changing our government for the better.
Politics is a harsh mistress, it may sting now but tomorrow is a new day. The fight for freedom is never over, we must fight for it wherever it is threatened. As usual, that is where you will find me.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
