Barbara Lee Congratulates President Obama and Thanks 13th Congressional District

Written by  Congresswoman Barbara Lee

Oakland, CA – Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) issued the following statement regarding the 2012 election results: "I want to thank the people of the 13th Congressional District for their resounding support in re-electing me to the United States Congress. It is such a tremendous honor to serve the most vibrant, forward-thinking and diverse constituency in the country.

"I want to congratulate President Obama and all of those who worked to secure his re-election victory. The nation has spoken and they voted to move America forward. I am also pleased that Democrats retained the majority in the U.S. Senate tonight. Unfortunately, we saw the twin Republican advantages of redistricting and money combined to prevent substantial gains for Democrats in the House. Clearly, we will have our work cut out for us, but we can and must come together to move our nation forward."
