Jim Kenney’s campaign sent the following email to supporters Thursday before he went on stage:
I’m about to go on stage – but first, I had to say thank you. It’s official: Because of all of your hard work, I am the Democratic nominee for mayor!
Just 103 days ago we launched this campaign and it is because of people like you, who stood by me from day one, and the broad coalition we built, that we were able to accomplish so much, so quickly.
More later – I’m going on stage to deliver my speech right now. I just wanted to make sure you knew, I will be eternally grateful and humbled by your support.
Now we’re on to the general, but with you by my side, I know we can do this.
