A grateful moment

All of us who care about a vibrant democracy have reason to be grateful this Thanksgiving.

I am thankful, as your Attorney General for the past six years, to have the honor of representing a state that continues to lead. Oregon was among the top five states for voter turnout. And we re-elected our fantastic Governor Kate Brown thanks to your hard work!

Across the country, the "blue wave" election results are cause for celebration. Democratic attorneys general received a national vote of confidence and added to our ranks, both in numbers and diversity. We flipped four AG seats from red to blue. Seven Democratic incumbents were re-elected. And six new Democratic AGs won seats vacated by other Democrats.

We can thank the American people for electing a groundbreaking number of Democratic women to Congress, and electing incoming members that better reflect the diversity of our great nation.

This weekend, I will spend time with my family and recharge for the important work ahead: fighting hate, protecting immigrants, the environment, health care, civil and consumer rights and so much more. We have much to do — together.

Thank you for your support and encouragement and for helping me make our state and country stronger by abiding by the Rule of Law.

Have a wonderful holiday!

Ellen
