An Open Letter to your campaign & supporters:
As someone who lives in Delay's district, let me tell you and all others who you wish to share these thoughts with: Thank you.
1. I've seen Delay hurt this country from his "strong-hold" for too long & really appreciate your efforts in taking him on.
It was great to see him sweat!
2. It did make a difference! I saw that man run around the country raising money for other Republican candidates. This time he had to stay home & fight.
That helped our candidates win elsewhere -- Waco comes to mind.
3. Hurting him in his county will hurt him in the party -- & that will make his ability to push extreme policies more difficult.
The next extremist bill or judge that doesn't get passed b/c Delay wasn't able to Hammer down good colleagues -- remember that it was your efforts that made it possible!
4. Realistically, we really weren't going to win this time -- there was no major candidate before, no history. What we were doing was setting up the next run -- & I think we have a good chance then!
Thank you guys for coming out of nowhere to make my life & many others in this district better. Thank you to all your contributors.
You did make a difference! Remember that!
Ya'll go take a vacation -- you earned it & frankly some of you people look like you need it! :-)
We'll see you guys when you get back.
