A few minutes ago, I called to congratulate Delegate-Elect Eric Brooks on his win tonight. I thanked him for running a clean race and offered my hope that he becomes the most successful Delegate that our community has ever had.
This is not the outcome we wanted, but our work continues to make West Virginia a place where everyone has the opportunity to thrive. There are countless people who supported us this year, and I'm so grateful to have had the best group of volunteers, friends, and allies that a candidate could ask for.
I pray that Mr. Brooks and members of our state and local government deliver policy solutions that empower families and small businesses alike.
Our work is not over. Our work was not in vain. Tomorrow, we will continue our dedication to our union and I'm so grateful to have been able to serve you on this journey.
