The Many Voices of Victory

Kamala Harris “Just a few moments ago, important elections in Virginia, New Jersey, and other states were called in favor of Democratic candidates who proved that our country will not stand for bigotry and hate. I know so many of you made phone calls, knocked on doors, donated, and more, for candidates both locally and around the country. Know this victory is as much as yours as anyone else’s — an example of what’s to come if we continue to work together. Now, let’s take this momentum and build a powerful coalition heading into the 2018 elections and take back Congress — and our country.”

Tom Perez “Because of you, Democrats won big in Virginia and New Jersey last night! What we’re doing is working. This election cycle, the Democratic National Committee invested more in boots on the ground and grassroots and digital organizing than in any "off-year" before. Good old-fashioned organizing paired with the latest technology and tools helped put our candidates over the top.

Joe Biden "A resounding defeat tonight for President Trump. Voters around the country rejected the ugly politics we have seen this past year. Instead, they chose candidates who unite and inspire us."

Barack Obama: "This is what happens when the people vote. Congrats @RalphNortham and @PhilMurphyNJ.And congratulations to all the victors in state legislative, county and mayors’ races. Every office in a democracy counts!”

Nancy Pelosi: “History was made last night .Up and down the ballot in races across the country, Democrats made their voices heard. The Washington State Senate flipped to a Democratic majority. The first transgender public servant was elected in Virginia -- a state where Democrats won all three statewide races and flipped over a dozen seats from red to blue, the largest margin since 1899!”

Hilary Clinton: “Last night, we were reminded what is possible when we come together and fight for what we believe in. With the support of Onward Together, 40% of the candidates that Run for Something endorsed and supported won their races in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and more -- compared to the 10% rate at which first-time candidates usually win. 86 women trained by Emerge America won last night, including nine of the seats flipped in Virginia. Color of Change PAC was instrumental in winning the district attorney race in Philadelphia. And Indivisible groups made more than 600,000 calls into Virginia to help pull out a win for Ralph Northam, Justin Fairfax, and Mark Herring. This year hasn't been what any of us had hoped it would be. In fact, it's been frustrating and, at times, painful. But we never lost faith in our vision of an America where our children and grandchildren can grow up safe and loved, and with every opportunity they deserve. To those of you who worked your hearts out for these victories, including our friends on the ground in Virginia, New Jersey, and more: thank you. I am so proud to be on your team. As we celebrate today, we also have to remember the work ahead of us. The groups that Onward Together supports -- including Swing Left, which is focused on taking back the House -- have been making incredible progress in the fight for 2018 and beyond. We saw again last night that we are at our strongest when we stand together.”
