“To the countless volunteers who put their blood, sweat and tears into my campaign, please accept my heartfelt congratulations. From phone banks to door knocking to parades, you were an inspiration. I only wish I had been able to deliver a better outcome. To my wife Sharon, thank you for your unwavering and unconditional support.
“New Hampshire, I was humbled to be your nominee for Senate. The campaign is over, but its memories will stay with me forever. God bless you all, and live free or die.”
