  • The new district lines placed me just outside of the district by two blocks.
  • From internal polling, I don’t have enough votes to win, but enough to be a ‘spoiler.’
  • I don’t make six figures or own stocks as the other candidates do. It’s not easy to run when you’re worried about how you’re going to pay for groceries.
