A message from John Chiang:

While yesterday was hard for many of us, I look around the state of California and see hope. I continue to be inspired by the ideals that Californians hold close to their hearts: the rule of law, religious freedom, equal rights, tolerance and economic prosperity for all.

Now more than ever I am determined to be your next Governor, a Governor who will fight for our values. We have seen how polling and preparation can slip through our fingers, so I am asking you to join me now. Commit to the future of our state now.

We may have lost yesterday, but we must not be defeated. Together, we must channel this result into motivation to fight even harder for our future. As Secretary Clinton so rightfully stated, “Please never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it.”

In hope,
