Thanks to all of my great supporters for this wonderful victory. I am very appreciative of the support, contributions of time and money, and the vote of confidence I received from the people of our district. Most of all, I thank all of you who had a hand in this election. If you walked in a parade, addressed envelopes, made phone calls, wrote a letter to the editor or just gave me an encouraging word, I thank you.
This has truly been a humbling experience for me as I have watched your efforts to bring change to our great state of Minnesota. You have all inspired me and I shall never forget your efforts.
I am honored that you have elected me to serve as your representative in St. Paul. I will always keep the reasons you elected me in the forefront. You have my commitment that I will always represent the interests of the people in our district and in the State of Minnesota.
Thank you and I pray that God will bless each of you.
