Thanks to your support, we won an amazing victory tonight. I am proud to be your next State Senator.
I would like to thank my opponent for running a hard-fought race. Our campaign was a strong coalition of grassroots supporters like you, the Florida Democratic Party and FDLCC, and labor and community organizations who unified behind a winning plan.
I’m beyond thankful for all of your work and your efforts and the thousands of volunteers who committed their time, energy and resources. This was a community, grassroots driven effort and I am ready to continue the work in our state capitol.
This is a victory for the residents of Senate District 40 as well. The voters wanted a champion in Tallahassee who will fight for higher paying jobs, affordable healthcare and fully funded public schools and I am honored and humbled that they have placed their faith and trust in me.
Thank you to my family – especially my husband Eric and my daughter Sofia – for standing with me every step of the way. I pledge to work everyday for all of the families in our community – not the special interests.
Thank you for everything you did to help us flip this seat. This is your victory.
Your Senator in the fight,
