It has been an honor to work with the diverse coalition that powered our campaign and helped mobilize over 178,000 Texans to the polls in support of our vision for change. This campaign may be over, but I look forward to continuing the essential work towards Medicare for all, a green new deal, a better Texas and a better world."
