A note from Jack Uppal:
I want to thank each and every one of you, and tell you what an honor it was to be your candidate for Congress. Together, we put forward a campaign that I am very proud of.
It saddens me to say that, despite the support, dedication and hard work of volunteers in each of our 10 counties, we were not successful in unseating Mr. McClintock.
To those who think you’re the only Democrats around – be cheerful! We received nearly 100,000 votes in this election – that’s more than a lot of winning candidates got in other congressional districts, even more than some got in Bay Area districts. It gives me great hope that we Democrats can make serious gains around this district, and that’s something that Kate and I will be continuing to work on with all our central committees.
As to my own future plans, honestly, I haven’t put much thought into that. And, you know how I like to think things through before acting on something. We’re going to take some time to unwind and relax, and we’ll make a decision on our future after that.
It’s been a real honor to run for Congress to represent the fine people in District 4. Thank you all so much.
