Thank you all so much for your overwhelming support in my campaign. With over 1.1 million votes – a third of the total votes – we were able to increase the Republican percentage by 8 points – over 300,000 more compared to the last general election – against the Madigan machine while being out spent more than 10 to 1. We could not have accomplished this without all of your support.
Although it was not the outcome we were seeking, our message of rooting out public corruption and bringing respect and jobs back to Illinois will continue to be a message that I plan to take beyond November 2nd. Again – thank you for your support and for carrying my message out. I look forward to seeing everyone in the near future.
