"Outcomes are what matter and we look forward to supporting our colleagues as they too work hard to deliver for their constituents; further, we are heartened that the empty promises and negative politics of this political season continue to wilt, because when all is said and done it is not the ugliness of politics that matters, but the confidence that comes with delivering meaningful outcomes for the people we serve," Congressman San Nicolas concludes.
