Ellis Statement on Election Outcomes
For Immediate Release
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (May 21, 2017): We are so grateful for the support of the thousands of California Democrats we received this weekend and over the past two years on this journey.
This was a close campaign, one that will come down to a handful of votes at the end of the day. We have some concerns about the way some of those votes were cast. If we want to build a Party that moves forward together, strong and unified, we owe it to every Democrat in California to ensure the election was conducted fairly and with transparency. We are talking with the CDP to do just that. We appreciate the leadership that Chairman Burton and Shawnda Westly have shown in this, and we’re working with them to find a resolution.
Win or lose, I’m proud of the campaign that we ran and the energy and enthusiasm we saw in that convention center. I’m committed to the future of our great Party, and I look forward to continuing our work together to turn California – and the nation – blue.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
