Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday that Democrats’ election victories one day earlier serve as a “reminder of what’s possible when we come together and fight for what we believe in.”

The former Democratic presidential nominee highlighted the victories of candidates backed by her political action group, Onward Together, and other political organizations.

{mosads}“Last night was a great reminder of what’s possible when we come together and fight for what we believe in,” she tweeted.

“So I wanted to take a few minutes to celebrate the extraordinary successes of a few groups I—and Onward Together—proudly fight alongside.”

Clinton also praised groups like Run for Something, which recruits young Democrats to run for office, and Emerge America, which backs young female Democratic candidates.

She also noted the efforts of Color of Change PAC, which backed progressive candidate and civil rights lawyer Larry Krasner in his win in the Philadelphia district attorney’s race.

“So many groups own a piece of last night’s victory, from @theDemocrats to @EMILYsList to @TheDLCC,” she tweeted. “It’s remarkable to watch our Democratic family—groups with decades of victories and those born in the aftermath of the last election—team up to make nights like last night possible.

“As we celebrate, let’s also remember the work ahead. Proud that groups that Onward Together supports—including @SwingLeft, which is laser-focused on taking back the House—have been making incredible progress in the fight for 2018 and beyond. Onward!”

Democrats overwhelmingly won in elections across the country on Tuesday, including gubernatorial races in New Jersey and Virginia.

Clinton wrote the tweets on the one-year anniversary of her stunning defeat to President Trump.
















Her comments come after former interim Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile sparked controversy by writing in a new book that the party was unfairly controlled by Clinton’s campaign during her primary race against Sen. Bernie Sanders. (I-Vt.).
