Yesterday was a great day for Hillary and for Democrats across the country.
Now that almost all the returns are in, I wanted to let you know of the
difference your support has made:
|Hillary’s impressive victory in New York, where she won
67% of the vote – a 12 % increase over her 2000 vote of 55%.
Even as she campaigned for her own re-election, Hillary headlined 131
events in 57 different cities on behalf of other Democrats. President
Clinton had made 97 campaign stops by last weekend, and has probably done
another 10 since then. He traveled to 31 states and raised $33 million
for Democratic campaigns.
Our extensive get-out-the-vote campaign, with regional staff, mail, and telephone calls helped Democrats in targeted races such as three newly-elected Democratic Members of Congress who replaced Republicans: Michael Arcuri, Kirsten Gillibrand and John Hall.
Hillary contributed and raised $550,000 for the New York State Democratic Party in this cycle, and HILLPAC-NY contributed $96,000 directly to New York candidates. She headlined events that raised more than $600,000 for New York Democratic candidates; made more than 45 appearances with New York Democratic candidates, recorded robo-calls, and sent e-mails and letters of support. President Bill Clinton went on the campaign trail in New York in the last days of the campaign, including for all 3 successful congressional candidates.
By reaching and encouraging New Yorkers to turn out and vote, our GOTV campaign helped ensure good news for Democrats at every level, including historic gains in state and county legislatures in upstate and suburban districts.
Your friendship and support have been so important to Hillary at every
step. Thank you for everything you have done to make this campaign
