“This year was unlike any other, especially for those of us running for office.

We actually came to terms with something far more important than a campaign,

only weeks before an election.


“Successful, or not, I think we all learned a valuable lesson from the decency demonstrated by our constituents since September 11 th . We can agree to disagree and still be civil in unity toward a common purpose. That kind of transformation in the tenor of American politics might be our society's most lasting memorial to the innocents lost in the vilest demonstration of inhumanity ever seen on our shores.


“Let's remember that together we can make a greater difference.”
