Tonight’s race was watched from every corner of this country. There wasn’t a city I hit during my book tour (and I hit over 40 of them) in which someone didn’t ask about this race, where people didn’t cheer when I mentioned Lamont’s name.
What tonight showed is that democracy can work. That even the most powerful, entrenched forces can be dislodged by people-power. That the combined mights of the Democratic and Conservative establishments couldn’t hold the gates against the barbarian intruders.
We can make a difference, and we will. We have just seen what we can accomplish if we set our minds to it. Now while we’ll work to seal the deal in Connecticut, we’ll also take our energy, our passion, and yes, even our dollars and use them to teach the ruling Republican ideologues running our country into the ground that they face repercussions for their incompetence.
Everyone has a race nearby that could user your help. We will win the battleground races. We will win many “lean Republican” ones. We will shock in several more. And even where we lose, we’ll build the party for the future, recognizing that Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither was the Conservative movement.
We’re in it for the long haul, but that won’t stop us from kicking ass in the short term.
So saddle up. We’re under 100 days to the general election. The time to fight is now.
