My immense gratitude to you for trusting this run, cannot thank you enough. 🙏 🇺🇸 🙏 We gave it all, but unfortunately fell short. After all the votes were counted we ended with 42.2% (~102,000) of the votes.
But here’s the good news: We have already far exceeded the vote count of any prior challenger in the last 30 years of this district. Very proud of our team and we hold our heads high today. We are hearing it loud and clear, via email, text and phone calls - to not stop.
Feedback: I would love to hear from you. Just submit your candid perspective here.
Reflective: While we didn't secure the victory we aimed for, our message and candidacy clearly struck a chord. The encouragement and feedback we received was truly heartening. We acknowledge there were areas of the campaign that could have been better. We're cognizant of these issues and committed to addressing them.
Let's stand tall and speak with conviction about our collective achievements. This journey has only just begun, and it's bound to lead to a positive outcome in the months ahead. Abiding by our principles ensures positive outcomes. So, let's continue to champion the right causes.
I hope I can count on your continued support. It would mean a lot to me.
Kudos to our incredible team – over a thousand strong – who came together over 20 months, believing in our vision and dedicating themselves wholeheartedly, pouring their heart and soul into it! While our bid for U.S Congress didn't culminate in a victory this time, be assured, our fight for what's right will not wane. My commitment to serving the people of Silicon Valley has only grown stronger, and we'll keep pushing forward relentlessly.
Thank you for believing in me. I really appreciate it.
