I have been writing this email for days now – adding some phrases here and there, deleting others, listening with at least some little attention to the TV journalists drone on and on about margins, provisional ballots, and projections. I have waffled between moods of hope and frustrating despair (especially on election day). Now that the results are in, being alone in the house, I find myself wandering around while I look for other, new things to worry about. Yes, that’s what I do. The bottom line is, though, that I feel relieved, unfocused, and, even though I expected it, disappointed in Trump’s dogged unwillingness to accept the inevitable.
I want to thank all of you. You came together in a way that I have not seen before in this county. I have never before been sure that if I asked for help with something, I would get it. You responded when things got really tight.
I need to also thank the Republicans (yes, some of them helped) and the Unaffiliated people who bolstered our calls, our lit drops and our GOTVefforts in general. John has put together some pretty impressive numbers which we can all be proud of.
There’s too much to give details here about your accomplishments. Check out the website tomorrow and into next week for more information about what we did and how we did it. It will probably take me several days to put it all together. Kudos to all of you who cared enough to work and work hard! I’m so proud of you all.
By the way, consider helping our Democratic candidates who are running in those two Georgia run-offs. It could mean the Senate majority!
