Sacramento, Calif. - With the latest update from the Sacrament County Registrar of Voters, Air Force Sergeant Tamika Hamilton has declared victory over her Republican challengers in the race for California's sixth congressional district. Hamilton issued the following statement calling for Republicans to unite to defeat Ami Bera:
"The latest update from the Sacramento County Registrar of Voters makes it clear I'm advancing to the November election.
"Thank you to my Republican challengers who ran a clean and principled race. We have an incredible opportunity to come together to defeat Ami Bera this fall and restore some commonsense in Washington. We CANNOT let any of these so-called progressives reinvent themselves as moderates after they've watched our country burn, our economy collapse, crime destabilize our neighborhoods, and the continued erosion of our public education system.
"We have to let people know there is still a choice and that there is a far better way to govern.
"Please join me on this journey as we look to create a better America for all and future generations. I'll see you on the campaign trail."
