Statement from Senator Adriano Espaillat
“After the campaign of our lives, having knocked on thousands of doors and talked to men and women of the 13th Congressional district who inspire me to serve the public, it is clear that we will not win this campaign.
I congratulate Congressman Charles Rangel. Though we didn’t make it to the finish line tonight, the values we fought for and the communities we seek to improve will continue to light a fire in us. The truth is, even in coming a bit short, we made history. We are most proud of the fact that our campaign introduced bold, new ideas to move New York forward. We will continue to fight for these ideas with every fiber of our being and make our communities stronger than ever.”
