It is a rare privilege to play a part in shaping the future of a great nation. By offering Americans an honorable, principled choice in this election, and being joined by thousands of supporters and volunteers to make a credible third party ticket part of the national conversation, we took significant steps toward reshaping the political landscape. For that, I am both proud and grateful.
This campaign was not about Bill Weld and me. It was not even about 2016. It was about a small government, greater freedom movement that I am confident will take hold and grow well beyond this election. It was about showing millennials, young people and all Americans that they do not have to blindly accept a two-party duopoly. We have hopefully set the stage for that movement to flourish and have real success at the polls.
This is a great nation filled with great people. Bill Weld and I are honored to have provided a voice for many of those great people, an deeply grateful to all those who made this historic effort possible.
Today is a day to give the President-elect our best wishes, and a sincere hope that, together, we can get about the business of addressing the challenges this great nation faces.
