Victories tonight in New Jersey and Virginia are the shot in the arm Democrats needed. Yes, we can still do it because when Democrats vote, we win! So I opened the bottle of champagne that has been on ice for a year. Have a glass! To us all – to everyone who worked hard to GOTV and to all who went out in the crummy weather, stood on line, and cast a ballot.

 

Here are the thank-you notes from the governors-elect of Virginia, Ralph Northam and New Jersey, Phil Murphy.

We could not have done this without you.

Today, Virginians proved that we won’t be divided, we won’t be torn apart, and we won’t sit idly by. We will speak out against divisiveness, hatred, and bigotry in all its forms, and we will fight for Virginia values.

I am so proud of this team, so proud of the work you have done, and so honored to have earned your trust, your vote, and to serve you as the 73rd governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Thank you for believing in this campaign—for digging deep and giving whatever you could, for investing your time, your money, and your heart in getting us to this moment. We put a ton of miles on the Sequoia as we traveled across the commonwealth the past few months. I saw the incredible work you did everywhere we went, from Fredericksburg to Fairfax, and Onancock to Roanoke—you showed the entire country what Virginians stand for and what it means to run an inclusive and forward-looking campaign.

I got into this race to make a difference for all Virginians, and you’ve been with me every step of the way. Folks were ready to get involved, knock doors, make phone calls, and talk to their neighbors about the values that matter most to us as Virginians. And for that, I will always be grateful.

Together we’ll keep making progress for Virginia families every single day.

Tomorrow, the hard work of governing begins, so let’s get to work.

—Ralph


I want to thank you.

I’m truly honored and humbled to be the next Governor of New Jersey, especially knowing you are the reason why I am here.

When we started this journey together 18 months ago, I never could have imagined how many of you would volunteer your time, chip in whatever you could afford, and sacrifice so much for this shared victory. And I truly cannot thank you enough for your support, and your conviction.

Without you, this would not have been possible. You helped send a message that we are united — and that together we’ll end the failed status quo in Trenton by creating a stronger, fairer economy that works for every New Jersey family.

So, now it is time to get to work. Together, we can do this. I believe in you and all the people living in our great state — and I promise I’ll always have your back.

Thank you,

Phil

Hillary Clinton draws 1,000 to N.J. appearance

Updated on September 26, 2017 at 8:59 PM

MONTCLAIR — The line waiting for Hillary Clinton nearly shut down Watchung Plaza in Montclair Tuesday. It went from the entrance of Watchung Booksellers, snaking around the corner and continuing down several blocks of North Fullerton Avenue.

Clinton greeted about 1,000 people who paid $30 for a signed copy of her new book, “What Happened,” and a brief individual encounter with the first woman to win a major party nomination for president of the United States.

The first fan to meet Clinton was an 89-year-old retired journalist, Betty Hall. From her wheelchair Tuesday, Hall, who traveled from Titusville with her daughter, Jane Lee, told reporters she wanted to meet Clinton because, “she should have won.”

Hall staked out her prime spot in line at about noon Tuesday for the event, which began shortly before 6 p.m. With the little time she had, Hall asked Clinton whether she would run again in 2020.

“She said, ‘No, but I’m going to be around,'” Hall said afterward.

A crowd lines up around the block of Watchung Booksellers to meet Hillary Clinton at her book signing.                                                                                                                                Anthony Gabbianelli | The Montclarion

A long line wrapped around Watchung Booksellers for Hillary Rodham Clinton’s ongoing “What Happened” book tour in Montclair this Tuesday. A thousand people gathered at Watchung Plaza for a chance to meet Clinton and received an autographed copy of her newest autobiographical book that provides the former presidential candidate’s reflections on the turbulent 2016 election defeat.

“This is a great way to finally meet her,” said Vineet Shah, a Clinton supporter who came from his tech job in Manhattan to see her. “She ran a campaign with values that I also hold and that’s what matters to me.”

A sizable portion of eager onlookers, some of whom brought pro-Clinton picket signs, gathered behind barricades across the street of the bookstore. A sense of grief still pervaded over many Clinton supporters since her defeat to current President Donald Trump in their hostile race for the presidency.

“I was almost in tears,” said Montclair native Courtney Novak reflecting on election night. “Most people I knew didn’t think she was going to lose.”

Hillary Clinton Statement on Apparent Terrorist Attacks

After yesterday’s attacks in Minnesota, New Jersey and New York, Hillary Clinton released the following statement:

“I strongly condemn the apparent terrorist attacks in Minnesota, New Jersey, and New York. I pray for all of those who were wounded, and for their families. Once again, we saw the bravery of our first responders who run toward danger to help others. Their quick actions saved lives. Law enforcement officials are working to identify who was behind the attacks in New York and New Jersey and we should give them the support they need to finish the job and bring those responsible to justice – we will not rest until that happens. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack in Minnesota, and this should steel our resolve to protect our country and defeat ISIS and other terrorist groups. I have laid out a comprehensive plan to do that. This includes launching an intelligence surge to help identify and thwart attacks before they can be carried out, and to spot lone wolf attackers. We also need to work with Silicon Valley to counter propaganda and recruitment efforts online. Americans have faced threats before, and our resilience in the face of them only makes us stronger. I am confident we will once again choose resolve over fear.”
