Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Throughout our campaign I was inspired by your passion, your energy, and your generosity. Thank you for all the doors you knocked, the calls you made, and conversations you had with fellow Wisconsinites about the future of our great state.
I will never forget the sweat, dedication and energy you put forth for our campaign.
While the outcome wasn’t what we had hoped for on Election Day, it doesn’t mean that the challenges facing Wisconsin workers and families go away.
During our campaign, I met proud Wisconsinites in every corner of the state – worried about jobs, worried about their communities, worried about their families and their future. It doesn’t matter if you’re from Superior, Platteville, Marinette or Milwaukee. The concerns are the same.
That is why I have pledged to work with Governor-elect Scott Walker to rise above the politics, and move Wisconsin forward. I have always believed in getting things done, and as I always have, I will work with anyone to move the ball forward.
I know we can get Wisconsin’s economy working again. I’m an optimist — it’s just who I am. Future generations in Wisconsin are counting on us — all of us, at every level, to get these things done.
The campaign may be over, but our mission is not. I am going to keep fighting for progress on these issues because there is more work to do, and I ask all of you to join me.
Thank you very much!
