Statement of Minnesota’s Newly Elected Secretary of State Steve Simon

“I want to first thank the voters of this great state for the trust they have put in me.  I am so honored to be your next Secretary of State.

I want to thank to my wife Leia and my wonderful staff as well as the many supporters, colleagues and friends who believed in me from the beginning and never wavered in their encouragement, endorsement and help to ensure our victory tonight.

Our campaign was based on a very simple principle: that a society in which every voice counts is a society in which every vote is counted. That isn’t just a Democratic principle or a Republican principle…that is a Minnesota principle!

Giving everyone a voice is the best of our traditions…and tonight Minnesotans have spoken and our great tradition will continue!

I am humbled, I remain honored.   Thank you so much.”
