Giffords: "Our Campaign Stood Up for the People"

Posted By on Tue, Nov 2, 2010 at 10:27 PM

Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords praised her Cactus Roots supporters when she spoke to the crowd tonight.

“There is a huge difference between a crowd and a community,” Giffords said as she thanked her supporters. “While other politicians bring a crowd along with them, we have built a community.”

She added that Democrats had lost many seats tonight.

“This election is going to go down in history as one of the angriest, one of the most difficult, one of the most challenging and one of the most angry,” Giffords said. “But while other campaigns across the country stooped to levels lower than we have ever seen before, our campaign stood up for the people. We based our campaign not on politics, but on solutions to real problems.”
