I am proud to have supported Dave Mejias for Congress.
Dave might have lost tonight but he fought the good fight and did what no other candidate running against King has done - scare the crap out of him.
Dave Mejias officially entered the race in June... a very late start for a campaign. He raised a record amount of money in a short period of time and built his name recognition by meeting the people of the 3rd Congressional District face to face.
In a district that was gerrymandered for Peter King, Dave did a great job. It's easy to claim victory if the voter registration numbers favor you 2-1. But that's like saying you hit a triple even though you were born on third base.
A shout-out to the men and women who helped Dave... Premo, Brendan, Gina, Gabby, Jason, Matt, and all the people down on Main Street. This race was something to be proud of.
