It's been a night I'd rather forget, but reality as it is Congratulations to President-elect Donald J. Trump. It's hard to admit defeat, but I will. I respect the will of the people even if I don't agree with it. My faith, upbringing and more dictate such an imperative. I have to respect the process, the Electoral College is what it is. I fought a fight not many agreed with, but I fought. I only want to fight a battle worth fighting. I took this fight on knowing who I am, and even in defeat I stand knowing I gave my heart to something I wouldn't have. I fought with a voice I refused as a child, and for that I'm proud. I lost a battle, not the war. Trump brought out a voice I really prayed I wouldn't want to use. Hillary didn't lose. I didn't lose. The American people won.
God Bless these United States.
deflated not defeated.
