Libby's statement to supporters


We ran an amazing campaign, and though it wasn’t the result we wanted,
hard work deserves recognition. I spoke with John Lombardi earlier to
congratulate him on the victory. I believe that going forward we will
all work together for a better Olneyville, Federal Hill, and Valley.

You all, my supporters, are generous, tenacious people. We do what we
do because we believe that elections matter, that a more fair and
beautiful world is possible, and we are willing to invest our lives
into making that world a reality. I cannot thank you enough for all
that you've committed to this campaign, and moving Rhode Island

Pundits laud our "high-energy campaign"

WPRI's Ted Nesi writes:

House 8 (D-Providence): Bizarrely, there’s widespread agreement that incumbent Rep. Mike Tarro will play the role of a spoiler in his own reelection race – the question is whether he takes more votes from Providence political fixture John Lombardi or young progressive newcomer Libby Kimzey. Lombardi starts with a cushion of support on Federal Hill, but Kimzey’s high-energy campaign has made few mistakes. Tarro has ramped up his own campaigning in recent days, but most see this as a fight between historic Providence (Lombardi) and emerging Providence (Kimzey). Indeed, Kimzey’s coalition is described as the same one that elected Angel Taveras – “Latinos and hipsters.”
