I want to thank you for everything you've done to help elect Republicans this year.
We're come so far as a political organization these past 6 months. Thanks to the passion and efforts of volunteers like you, we've grown our volunteer base to nearly 1000 strong. Because of the time you've generously given, our combined Chicago GOP/Victory HQ made more calls than any other center in the state. With a coalition effort to recruit election judges, we vetted and placed more Republican election judges than any other cycle in decades. And as a result of your financial contributions, we've broken fundraising records.
I have never been more optimistic about the impact that Chicago Republicans can have on Illinois politics. With our state's constitutional officers and a US Senate seat all on the ballot in 2014, the Chicago Republican vote will be a difference-maker, and because of the groundwork we've laid together, we'll be organized, funded, and ready to go.
To our candidates, thank you for putting yourself out there and fighting for our principles. To our Committeemen, thank you for all that you do.
Last night was a tough one. Be proud of what we've accomplished.
The fight for the future of Illinois starts today.
