We worked hard, and made many friends along the way, but we fell just short. It was an amazing effort, and we should be proud of the enthusiasm we generated and the broad support of people across the political spectrum that rallied to our cause.
I want to thank William Tong for a running a tough, spirited race that focused on the issues and congratulate him on being Connecticut’s next Attorney General.
I have so many of you to thank for your love and support. Running for any public office involves an enormous commitment of time and energy, but running for statewide office is a special challenge, especially for a mom with an awesome husband and two wonderful boys, all of whom supported me every step of the way in this effort.
The success we achieved and enthusiasm this campaign generated would not have been possible without the incredible help provided by not only my immediate family, but my extended family — my campaign staff and friends.
Thanks again, everyone — remember that every end is a new beginning — let’s go forward from here and continue to work together to shape a better Connecticut.
