I've never been more inspired

First of all, thank you for your support.

Last night, the American people delivered a stunning rebuke to the Trump and Republican agenda of hatred, bigotry and corruption. They demanded an end to the assault on institutions critical to our democracy such as voting rights and a free press. Americans said no more. In the next Congress, the House of Representatives will advance an agenda For the People, and serve as a check on the Trump Administration.

I'm honored to be heading back to D.C. to a congress that will again work for the people. I'm proud that my campaign was fueled by the energy of so many amazing volunteers and supporters – not Wall Street- but an honest-to-goodness grassroots movement.

And, I'm excited to get to work as part of the new Democratic majority, alongside some new Members of Congress including Katie Hill (CA-25), Kim Schrier (WA-08), Mike Levin (CA-49), and Abby Finkenauer (IA-01).

Right here in Oregon, we saw a new generation of young leaders – some not yet old enough to vote! – stand up and work like hell for the future they deserve. It was truly inspiring to work with the Young Democrats of Lane County.

That’s leadership. And I couldn’t be prouder to stand by this incredible group as they build our movement. They're planning on continuing their momentum and start working on the 2020 election.

Celebrate our victory in the House with a donation of $20.20 to this group of Young Democrats! Your contribution will go directly these young world changers and help them open an office for 2020 and greatly expand their reach.

Our goal is $5,000 – and I believe in these young people so much that I will match your donation dollar-for-dollar!

Now it's time to get to work. I hope you'll continue to speak up – loudly and often – and I'm looking forward to bringing your voice to the halls of the Capitol.
