Tuesday, Congresswoman Terri A. Sewell released the following statement celebrating her election as the Democratic nominee to continue representing Alabama’s 7th Congressional District in Congress.

“To every voter who supported our campaign, I say thank you. It is because of your support that I can officially announce that I am the Democratic nominee for Alabama’s 7th Congressional District.

“While we celebrate our victory tonight, we know that our fight is not over. There is too much at stake for us to be on the sidelines. We have to keep working to lower costs and grow our economy. We have to keep working to make healthcare more affordable. We have to keep working to make our communities safer. And we have to protect our democracy and our sacred right to vote from those who seek to take us back.

“I look forward to us working together as we march toward November and victory. Thank you again for your support. It is an honor to represent you in Congress, and I look forward to the work that lies ahead.”
