Chellie Pingree says "Thank you MoveOn members"

Dear MoveOn member,

As you may have heard, earlier this week progressive champion Chellie Pingree announced that she would run for reelection to the U.S. House of Representatives rather than the U.S. Senate seat in Maine vacated by Republican Olympia Snowe.

It was a tough decision for her. Really tough—especially given the outpouring of support and encouragement she received from MoveOn members. 

To say thank you to MoveOn members for the thousands of petition signatures and over $300,000 that you pledged to support a possible Senate campaign—and to make sure you know the fight is not over, she recorded this video. Click here to watch.

Thanks for all you do.

P.S. Here's a longer speech Chellie gave at a reception in Portland, Maine, for her constituents who encouraged her to run for Senate. If you have a few more minutes, it's well worth watching.
