I wanted to thank you so much for all of your support during this campaign. Yesterday's vote of confidence from the people of Maryland's Third District was truly humbling. I look forward to continuing to work hard in Congress on behalf of my constituents and our country.
America has been through a long and hard fought campaign for the presidency and last night's result was a surprise to many. We must move forward, finding opportunities to work together collaboratively, while recognizing that there will inevitably and justifiably be points of deep disagreement among us. Above all, we must listen to each other in good faith and with an appreciation that our diversity -- of backgrounds, of views, of convictions -- should be and can be the source of our greatest strength.
-Congressman John Sarbanes
