I have spent my entire career bringing people together to get good things done for the American people. The people of this district, from Austin to Brenham to the Houston suburbs, know that I will do right by them and make sure their voices are heard. Though we have endured much this year, I firmly believe America is on the precipice of accomplishing extraordinary things. By working together, we can overcome any obstacle and lift up our citizens so that they can achieve their own American dream."

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."
