Thank you from Brian Moran
"As we await a final result in a Senate race that could determine whether the Virginia Senate remains in outright Democratic control or a balanced 20-20 tie, I wanted to take a moment and thank you for all of your extraordinary efforts on behalf of the Democratic Party and our wonderful candidates.

Even as the Republicans and the media predicted a terrible night for Democrats in the Senate races and that we would lose as many as 7 or 8 seats, you helped us re-elect at least 20 of our 22 Democratic Senators, including major victories in Northern Virginia, Hampton Roads and Southwest Virginia.

There is no question in my mind that the Get Out the Vote efforts over the last weeks ensured our victories. Your tireless efforts knocking doors, making calls and advocating for our candidates made the difference.

In addition to that your efforts helped local candidates all across the Commonwealth win huge victories including Shannon Taylor's upset win over an Eric Cantor-backed candidate to become the Commonwealth's Attorney in Henrico County.

There is no doubt that some of last night's results were disappointing and that much work remains for our party to continue to stand up for balanced and effective government that invests in public education, transportation, job creation, and other institutions that create opportunity for middle class families. But on a night when nearly everyone said that many of our Senators were headed for historic defeats, you flipped the conventional wisdom on its head.

With just 363 days to go until we re-elect President Barack Obama, send Tim Kaine to the U.S. Senate and pick up seats in the U.S. Congress, I want to thank you for everything you do for our party and congratulate you on the outstanding effort you made for our candidates this year.

Sincerely, Brian J. Moran"
