We finished strong – but, at the end of the day, we came up short.

I am proud of the campaign we ran. I shall remain forever grateful for the opportunity to run for the United States Senate.

As the only woman Democrat in this race, it was a privilege to share a message of standing up for hardworking families and expanding economic opportunity.

I could not have done it without thousands of supporters and friends. It was this friendship that sustained me as I traveled across Louisiana. Thanks to all of you for welcoming me into your homes, communities, meetings, and places of worship.

Now, as I return to private life, I believe with all my heart that Louisiana’s best days are still ahead. We have a bright future and, working together, we can bring it to fruition for every Louisianan. I will continue working and fighting for that future.
