Thank you, Everyone!

Over the past several months, I've been inspired and amazed by the commitment of the people of this District to improving the lives of everyone who lives here. I've been grateful for the tremendous support that's been given to me and the other candidates by people determined to elect a representative who puts her constituent's interests ahead of the interests of wealthy donors.

I've also been clear that I will leave the campaign if and when I decide that the best way forward for the District is for me to step back. That time has come. I've decided to suspend my campaign and give more space for the voters to get to know the other candidates, so that they can decide who will best represent our District in Congress. As I've told many people I've gotten to know this year, you're still going to see me because I'm committed to flipping this seat, and then working to improve the lives of everyone in this District. But I've decided I can best do that without the constraints of a campaign that forces me to downplay some of the issues about which I care the most, because I'm afraid of alienating voters we will need. In addition to helping elect our first female representative for this District, I'll be joining the Poor People's Campaign (at www.breachrepairers.org) to fight more broadly for the social justice issues that as a country we must fix before we can become everything we know we can be.

Thank you so much to my campaign team Dyana Polk, Luis Amezcua and Nolan Pack, to Kris Johnson and Tita Bladen for their untiring support of our campaign, and to everyone else across the District who is showing up and fighting for the things that matter. Together, we will create a better world for our kids.
