Rhode Island Re-elects Congressman Langevin
Jim Langevin released the following statement after he secured reelection in Rhode Island's Second Congressional District:I am grateful to Rhode Islanders for their support and for again putting their trust in me to fight for them. I will never take it for granted.
I especially want to thank the volunteers, who have always been the driving force behind my campaigns, for working hard to spread our message that Rhode Island and the nation do best when we have a strong middle class.
As we move past this election, it is imperative that we come together in Washington to meet our challenges and refuse to accept the gridlock that has often impeded progress. These are still very challenging times with so many Rhode Islanders out of work, and our constituents deserve leaders who will compromise, without compromising our commitment to the middle class. I will continue to work with anyone to get things done and ensure a fair opportunity for all Rhode Islanders.
Finally, tonight is a big night, but it's also important to take a moment and remember what so many people are still going through as a result of last week's devastating storm. We will get through the recovery together here in Rhode Island, like we always do, and my thoughts and prayers go out to people up and down the East Coast.
