Senator Al Franken recently thanked Council for a Livable World supporters for their generous support for this campaign. With more than $120,000 in contributions, Council members provided a significant boost to his hard-fought race, which was decided by just over 300 votes.
Read a portion of his thank you here. Full text after the jump.
“I want to thank my supporters from Council for a Livable World for believing in me. You were early supporters for my candidacy for the United States Senate, giving me crucial support when few others would.
In July, Vice President Joe Biden swore me into office as the new Senator from Minnesota. Standing there, I was so grateful for the many dedicated supporters who made that moment possible.
I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to Council for a Livable World and its members for your generous support both during the election and throughout the long legal battles that followed…
…This was a hard-fought campaign, and the continuous financial and political support from the Council has been tremendous. You raised more than $120,000 for my campaign, and it certainly made a difference in a race that was decided by just 312 votes.
Now that the election battle is over, the real work begins. This moment marks a turning point in our nation’s approach to foreign policy, national security, and nuclear weapons policy. I look forward to a productive, close relationship with you in the years to come.
Thank you again for your dedicated support.”
