Victory, In Your Own Words

I have always said that we have the best supporters. After Election Day, you proved it. Literally thousands of supporters have reached out to us, to offer congratulations and best wishes. I wish that I could share with you what everyone said, but this is an e-mail, not a Vulcan mind-meld. So here are a beautiful few:


This is some of the best news in the entire 2012 election -- Mr. Grayson, you're a man of grit, humor, intelligence and above all, integrity. - Betsy

You are the only one telling truth to power. - Barry

No one is always right. But you sure sock it to 'em. Stay well and safe. We need your voice. - John

May you be one of the few who go to Washington, and continue speaking your mind (like that's ever going to stop). Remember the people who are counting on you. - Bonnie

You have sensitivity, a stiff back, intelligence, guts and grit. You’re my kind of Congressman. - Bill

You did more than kick ass ... you obliterated your opponent. Maybe you should check on him to see if he's OK .... - Tom

I do not live in your district but you are my favorite Representative. I may have to move!! – Ron

Congratulations on your win. That was the best $25 bucks I have ever spent. - Charlie

I was walking on clouds today. I sincerely hope this is the start of your forty-year tenure in American politics!!! GO ALAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dude, you're a god, what can I say? - George

Great win for us, the working class! - Rick

My heart skipped a beat when I saw your name in the "win" column last night. - Barbara

Congratulations, Alan. I am so happy for you and us. I live in Oregon and contributed to your campaign, because we are all connected. - Georgia

Much of the momentum that got so many Democrats elected this time around is due in a very large part to your tireless efforts. My prayers are with you tonight. So are my thanks. – Clay

My hard work making phone calls and knocking on doors has paid off in your re-election to Congress. - Donald

Congratulations Alan! You were the only congressman we could afford to spend our very limited funds supporting, but [we] truly believed the House needed you back! - Harriet & John

I am an 88-year-old man living on retirement. I was not able to donate to many contests – I had to choose carefully. So I chose two with the meager funds I could spare. One was Alan Grayson. The other was Elizabeth Warren. The United States has won again, on both counts. - Russell

I have lost everything and am on Social Security so I am not able to give as much as I could before, but I will watch your career and support you. My very best to you, and your future in Congress. Our country is so fortunate to again have you back as one of the crew members of the "Ship of State". - Kathy

Even though, at age 87 and living on a widow's SS stipend, I was unable to contribute money to your campaign, I contacted everyone I knew in your district to tell them what an outstanding citizen they had running for Congress. I waited up much after President Obama's victory to see if you had won, and I think I woke up my nearest senior living apartment neighbors with my "Whoopees”! I am so proud that you are representing our state as one of the few in Congress who is fearless, intelligent and dedicated to doing what is necessary to take our nation properly into the 21st Century. The Creator has blessed us with you. – Emily

Every candidate I donated to WON! If that is not a sign from Heaven, I do not know what is!! Now I wish I had dug deeper and donated more to more candidates for the House! Maybe I could have single-handedly retired Michelle Bachman, or Steve King!! Another $60, at $3 apiece, might have delivered the House back to the Dems. I will try to do better next time! - Mary


And then there was this:

You are a Rock Star w/Huge Balls – unsigned

Thank you all.


Rep. Alan Grayson
