(Me? I din' do nothin' - except promote this diary. Thank YOU, Congresswoman Speier. - promoted by David Dayen)
We did it!
Thanks to the help from so many of you here at Calitics and throughout the California progressive blogosphere -- Bob, Melissa, Brian, Frank, Greg, Robert, Julia, Dave, and so many of you -- our campaign won a resounding victory last night.
Your support in the blogosphere made a real difference on Tuesday. Thank you so much for blogging about the race, building support, mobilizing activists, and helping us get out the vote. I promise that I will work as hard as I can, every day, to make you proud.
Together, we won a tremendous victory Tuesday night -- but now it's already time to get to work. I just got off a plane, and I am already in Washington, DC. Tomorrow I'll be sworn in on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives and cast my first vote as a Member of Congress.
|We've got a lot of work to do -- to end the war in Iraq, rejuvenate our economy, make quality health care available to all Americans, protect our environment, fight global warming -- the list goes on and on. And I'm going to need you with me every step of the way.
So stay tuned. I intend to stop by to blog here frequently, keeping you updated on the work I'm doing in Washington and asking for your help as we fight for the issues that matter to the people of the 12th District and all Americans.
I couldn't have won this election without you -- and I can't be an effective Member of Congress without you either.
Thank you, again, for everything you did for our campaign. We did it -- now it's time to get to work!
All the best,
