MADISON – The following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning in light of last night’s election results:

“Like so many of you, I am disappointed by Tuesday’s results. However, while these were not the results we hoped for, the people have spoken, and now it is up to us to come together to move our state and our nation forward.

“Despite our disappointment, we must not get discouraged and walk away from the process. We must unite and work for the American dream we all believe in.

“As Democrats, we will forge onward and continue to fight for hard-working men and women who want a fair shot to get ahead. We will continue to advocate for future generations of Americans who deserve the opportunity to live the American dream. And, in an election year marked by divisiveness and hate, we will continue to stand up for inclusiveness and respect for all Americans no matter their race, color, or creed.

“We will also work to hold President-Elect Trump accountable to the people who elected him. Like many, we are deeply concerned that his policies will be harmful to the millions of hardworking Americans who most need help in these challenging times.

“I want to thank all of the fantastic Democratic candidates who had the courage and vision to run for office in this election: From Hillary Clinton, to Russ Feingold, to our amazing candidates up and down the ballot. Their passion and dedication was an inspiration to so many around this state. Win or lose, we were proud to stand with each and every one of you. As Secretary Clinton said only moments ago, this loss hurts, but we must all continue to fight for what we believe in.  As Democrats, that’s exactly what we intend to do.”
