From Brady Piñero Walkinshaw
“The last eleven months have been a profound and rewarding experience. The friendships I've built and the people I've met will be a rich part of my life for a long time to come. Thank you. I owe a debt of gratitude to those of you who stood with me knocking on doors, investing your resources, talking to friends, and believing in our vision. Our campaign team has been amazing every step of the way.
With the shadow of last night's presidential election, now more than ever, the Northwest is a beacon to the rest of the country for the kind of society we want to live in. We're a place that strives for justice and equity. We're a place that believes in a natural environment that sustains our future. We're a place that embraces immigrants and refugees. We're a place that can be a source of inspiration in the difficult days ahead, and we must continue to demonstrate how our Democratic values can win.
Our race was competitive, but the aspirations that unite us vastly outweigh our differences. My gratitude and congratulations to Senator Jayapal, who I know for certain will be a courageous and tireless voice for us in Congress and who'll carry the values we share here to our country, especially with the uncertain future we face. She has my full support.”
