Valentine Anniversary email from Al

Happy anniversary!
No, I didnt get our wedding anniversary confused with Valentines Day. Its the anniversary of the day we began a very special relationship with hundreds of thousands of supporters like you.
You see, four years ago today, I announced that I was running for the United States Senate. I hoped people would be willing to give their time and energy (and, of course, money) to support me, but I had no idea what a great grassroots movement wed build together.
It is such a privilege to be able to fight for the people of Minnesota in the Senate. And every day I wake up and go to work, I do so knowing that I didnt do it alone. I cant tell you how much I appreciate everything each of you did to help me get here.
Of course, there IS one person who did a little more than anyone else. During the campaign, I used to say, Franni and I are running for the Senate. If we win, I get to be the Senator. Well, we won. And what I said proved true -- I get to be the Senator.
But Franni continues to be my partner, my inspiration, my best friend -- and the love of my life since the day I saw her across the room at a freshman mixer almost 42 years ago. And although were honored to mark this fourth anniversary with all of you today, were always excited to celebrate another Valentines Day together.
From both of us to all of you -- thanks for everything. And have a very happy Valentines Day.

P.S. -- Our anniversary is October 2. See, I told you I didnt forget.

1. Valentines Wishes
Best heartfelt greetings to you and your beautiful bride. I am so proud of you as my Senator. I must have led a good life to have both you and Keith Ellison as my reps in D.C. at this turbulent time in our nation's history. Keep up the good fight. Sanity may yet prevail.
