“The Hudson Valley voted for change, Maloney said. “Across four counties on two sides of the Hudson River, in hundreds of schools, firehouses, community centers, in the Democratic vote of a quarter million of our neighbors, the people have settled this debate. They have closed this campaign. My friends, tonight we have completed our course. We’ve done it. We’ve won this race. This is your victory. Tonight, we start putting people first again in the Hudson Valley and in Congress. And I’m ready to accept this challenge and the responsibility that comes with this new charge. And with your help, we’ll make this office work again. We’ll make this country work again for the people who need it working for them.
