Robert C. Byrd: Our Victory

I want to thank you for your enthusiasm and steadfast support. Because of that support, I have been given the most sacred gift any human being can give to another -- trust. Be assured that I will honor that trust forever.

Even more importantly, Democrats won resounding victories in the House and the Senate and we are now in control of both houses of Congress for the first time in more than a decade.

Together, we have put an end to one-party rule. We have returned to the country the system of checks and balances that was promised in our Constitution, but eschewed by the Republicans.

In casting their ballots, Americans rejected the Bush Administration's deception and use of fear as a political tool and stood up for our precious Constitutional liberties. We showed the President that his current failed Iraq policy is serving neither the interests of our country nor our brave men and women in uniform. It appears he has received the message, as he has finally fired the Secretary of Defense.

I want to extend a special thanks for helping my campaign online. During my victory speech on Tuesday, I joked that two years ago I thought the Internet was a brand of hair spray. But all kidding aside, the grassroots support of thousands of friends nationwide, who came to my website and supported my campaign, played an essential role in this re-election.

Once again, I thank you for your support and your hard work throughout this campaign. The election is only a first step. Defense of our liberties takes an active and informed citizenry which stands up and lets their voices be heard.

Moving forward, and working together, we will now have the change in direction that America desperately needs.

With gratitude,

Robert C. Byrd
United States Senator
