While Tuesday's results have not turned out as we expected, there is a great deal to be proud of, and even more of which we should be thankful. Most of all, in the last year since I started on this journey, I have been blessed to meet and work with so many wonderful people. I won't begin to list the names, because I don't want to miss anyone, but you know who you are. Your incredible hard work, especially over the last few months leading up to election day, enabled us to run a campaign which caused many in the opposition to sit up and take notice, and it created enough flak, which told us we were right over the target. And none of you backed down in the face of that fire, rather, the more they attacked us, the stronger you became. You handed out fliers, made phone calls, introduced me to people, raised money, knocked on doors, and created a wave of energy which lifted all of us, and especially me, in this cause.
Moreover, you educated this political newbie, gently nudging me in the right direction, or twisting my arm when my stubbornness got in the way of common sense. You took care of details without my knowing they existed, enabling me to look smarter and more organized than I really am. I cannot thank you enough for all that the many of you have done, and I am blessed that you are now in my life. I treasure each and every one of you, and I'm proud to call each of you friend.
I can promise to you, that this is not the end of our journey. We are not finished, not yet. Our mission, to preserve and defend the God given freedoms recognized and guaranteed by our forefathers, which are so evident in the way we live here in Coeur d'Alene is far from over. Our journey may take other forms, lead us in new directions, but it will not stop until we are finished. As Winston Churchill said, "This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."
God love and bless you all.
