Nearly two years ago, my family, friends, supporters and I began an improbable journey. We traveled through the district and across the state. We met passionate individuals who gave voice to the concerns felt by many Americans and detailed the hopes of their families, their communities, and the 3rd Congressional District.
Many of you joined us through this journey. While three months have passed since the election, I am still humbled and inspired by your hard work, dedication, and commitment to the causes you care about. Even though we did not get the results we had hoped for on Election Night, the importance of your role in the first chapter of our journey is not diminished.
And now, the journey continues. After a period of honest reflection and consultation with my family and members of the community, I have decided to run again for Congress in 2012.
I am running again because the issues we care about are no less important today than they were last November. You deserve a representative who will fight to:
Create good jobs and secure America’s place as the world’s economic leader;
Bring the needed expertise to continue to improve access to health care—rather than simply saying “no” to progress;
Build an education system that truly prepares future generations to compete in an innovation-driven and interconnected global economy.
Ensure that the opportunity to achieve the American Dream is available to all who work hard.
In short, you deserve a representative who will fight for you.
I learned many valuable lessons from our 2010 campaign, the most important of which is that there is no substitute for the might of an impassioned group of citizens working together for a better future.
And so, I ask for your help to carry on our work. Together we will continue this improbable journey toward a new chapter of new leadership for our community. Together we will build a better future for all of our children and grandchildren. Together we will race towards victory in 2012.
