Thank You, Supporters!
Your support made me the number one vote getter in Tuesday's Democratic Primary, and I’m one step closer to becoming the Democrat who will challenge Republican State Rep. Paul Workman in November. But that’s not the only good news.
While Republicans cast more primary ballots than Democrats statewide: 1.5 million to 1 million, that wasn’t the case in District 47. Democrats here cast 15,919 votes versus 15,266 in Workman’s contested primary. We have a bigger Democratic base to build upon.
To win in November, we have to do more than turn out our base. We have to convince a majority of voters who skipped the primaries that they need to send Workman packing.
I came out on top of a crowded field of five worthy candidates because we knocked on more doors, sent out more mail, made more phone calls, and raised more money than anyone else. We’ll have to do it again in the May 22 runoff, and we will.
Your support made my first-place finish possible in round one, but there are two more rounds to go. I’ll continue to work hard for the next ten weeks and the next eight months. With you in my corner, I know we’ll win in November.
