Thank you

Sybil and I wanted to thank you for your tremendous support over the last five months. While we didn’t accomplish our goal last night, we overcame long odds to make the race in Kansas competitive.

That would have never happened without the support and dedication of so many people. For that, we will be eternally grateful.

And while we didn’t win the race, we won in so many ways. We sent a message to Washington that the gridlock and fighting needs to end. We showed independents across America that they can run competitive races without the benefit of a party label. And we inspired a lot of voters to re-engage in the political process again.

It has been the privilege of a lifetime to be able to travel the state of Kansas and talk with voters about issues that matter to them. It’s clear there is a real desire to see fundamental change in Washington. It was inspiring to see so many people energized around the vision of a better future.

We are hopeful that Washington heard you last night and that they start working across the aisle to address the problems that America so desperately needs to resolve. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
