Los Angeles – (June 4th, 2014) – The results from yesterday’s California State Senate race are in. With 100 percent of precincts reporting, social justice attorney Sandra Fluke was one of the top two vote getters and will move on to November’s general election. Fluke released the following statement:
“I am immensely proud of my campaign. I want to start by thanking the grassroots supporters who stood with me. We ran a campaign that shows what kind of elected official I will be: one who is accountable to the individuals who voted me into office, not to special interests. I want to thank the more than two thousand individual donors and volunteers who truly fueled this campaign. We had an incredible team.
“I also want to acknowledge the other candidates. There were a number of incredibly talented and passionate candidates in this race who deeply care about their communities. I look forward to continuing to work with them to make our neighborhoods better.
“Now is the time to turn my focus towards the general election. I’m looking forward to continuing to talk with voters about the issues important to us all: education affordability and access, environmental protection and water conservation, economic security and more. I’m proud the voters know that I will be the kind of progressive leader who isn’t afraid to stand up for what is right, and will always fight for them.”
