"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."
