Today is Election Day -- the culmination of our 10-month campaign to finally give Missouri voters more than a choice between two sides of the same partisan coin.
This is a watershed moment in our nation’s history -- our government is being held hostage by a vocal minority powered by divisive, self-serving, fringe politics.
And it's time for us to take it back.
Americans are sick and tired of feckless, self-interested politicians putting party over country at the expense of the people they claim to represent.
That's why I decided to step up and run for Senate -- it is our patriotic duty to transcend partisan tribalism and refocus our politics on the common good.
You stepped up, big time. You put your faith in us, made your voice heard, and joined us on a mission to take our country back.
For that, I thank you.
Our nation was boldly conceived with the tenets of freedom, honest and honorable representation, and the opportunity for us to construct our own destiny.
Together, we are fighting for those tenets -- and that fight will go on long after tonight.
Thank you again for all you have done.
