PRESS RELEASE from Presidential
November 13, 2008
Below is a statement from President-elect Barack Obama
“It has been one of the highest honors and privileges of my life to
have served the people of Illinois in the United States Senate.
In a state that represents the crossroads of a nation, I have met so
many men and women who’ve taken different journeys, but hold common
hopes for their children’s future. It is these Illinois families
and their stories that will stay with me as I leave the United States
Senate and begin the hard task of fulfilling the simple hopes and
common dreams of all Americans as our nation’s next President,” said
President-elect Barack Obama.
