Bad week? This might make it slightly better
What do you do when you’ve lost one of the most bitter and divisive election battles in history? Once you’ve said goodbye to your campaign team and consoled the millions of people who voted for you?

I got to hug her and talk to her and tell her that one of my most proudest moments as a mother was taking Phoebe with me to vote for her.
