Thank you to everyone who has made this campaign an incredible, joyful, powerful movement all across North Carolina's 4th Congressional District. We might not have seen the results we hoped for, but this is not a loss
This election showed just how powerful we are. Right-wing super PACs and a billionaire living in the Bahamas had to spend over $3.6 million to defeat our movement in one election. That is the power that we have built. They had to spend more money than anyone has ever spent in the history of a Congressional primary in North Carolina in order to win this race. Right wing billionaires and Islamophobes are scared of our movement, and that gives me hope, because it means we are organizing to deliver real change for our working families.
Thank you so much to everyone who organized with us — too many people & organizations to name. It has been a joy and an honor to organize with the hundreds of young people who are fighting for a better future. You give me hope - thank you. Our work in North Carolina is just beginning - we must flip the Senate in November, and do all we can to turn out young people and people of color to vote for Cheri Beasley! Onward.
