14. Nancy, you helped win a Democratic congress
The loss is devastating to all involved but know this, YOU AND EVERYONE ON YOUR TEAM ELECTED A DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS.

You, Jim and Tony served as anchors to Joe, Mike and Thadius. Over $5million was forced to stay in these three districts. As of 10/31 Knollenburg showed less than $180k COH. You efforts forced him to spend over $2million. In all, $5million was locked down in these three districts. Sure it made your climb that much harder but it is $5million that was NOT spent elsewhere in the country that may have preserved a GOP majority. Make no mistake about, your local loss was painful BUT IT ELECTED A DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS. THIS IS NO SMALL THING. Knollenburg was left broke and it wouldn't surprise me if he retires next cycle. All of your efforts were substantial.
