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

The event will be Hillary Clinton’s first for a candidate in 2017.

Hillary Clinton is set to return to the electoral fray next week.

The Democratic Party’s 2016 presidential nominee will break from her book tour to raise campaign money for Virginia Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, the party’s gubernatorial nominee, next Wednesday, multiple Democrats familiar with the plan confirmed to POLITICO.

News of the New York event was first reported by The Associated Press.

The event will be Clinton’s first for a candidate in 2017, though she has stepped back into politics with the launch of her new group, Onward Together, that backs Democratic organizations.

The former secretary of state has also re-emerged in the national political conversation recently with the publication of her latest book, “What Happened,” which recounts her loss to Donald Trump.

Northam is locked in a tight battle with Republican Ed Gillespie, though polls show Northam slightly ahead. The current governor, Terry McAuliffe, is a close friend of Clinton’s. McAuliffe isn’t eligible to run for re-election because of Virginia’s law prohibiting consecutive terms.
