Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez released the following statement Monday evening following Van Tran’s concession call.
â€œI feel extremely honored that the hardworking families of California’s 47th Congressional District have entrusted me to represent and fight for their priorities for another term.Â I would like to commend my opponents, Assemblyman Van Tran and Cecilia Iglesias, for running hard-fought campaigns. While we may differ substantially in policy, we all want to see our community grow and thrive. Orange County is our home, and its residents are our friends and neighbors.â€
â€œThroughout my time in office, I have always strived to be an independent voice for the families in my district. When I return to Washington, that legacy will remain unchanged. Every vote I cast, every decision I make will continue to be guided by the best interests of our community. That has been, and will always be, my promise to you and your families.â€
â€œOver the years, I have never ceased to be amazed by the hard work, innovation, and sheer determination that defines the people of this community. That innate perseverance will be crucial as we continue the fight for good-paying jobs, affordable health care, quality schools, and a stronger middle class. Working together, we can and will make these cornerstones a reality for every single Orange County family.â€
