Snapchats from this day two years ago, part 2. This time November moods

Check out my new project- a look back on the election two years ago, and that last hopeful day before everything changed.

Lisa Stillwell of Lancaster cheers for congressional candidate Jess King after announcing her defeat. “I feel fine,” she said. “We knew that the odds were stacked against a Jess King win because of redistricting. She has brought people together who otherwise would never talk to each other.” This mirrored King’s statements of unity and hope for the future.

“It was the right thing to do- to dig deeper, to fight harder, to be true to our home, to give people a choice, to love our neighbors as ourselves, right?” Jess King said during a speech after her loss to Lloyd Smucker. Under the slogan “America is for all of us,” King’s campaign broke records for Democrats in the area. Her grassroots operation raised over $1.6 million, without any help from the Democratic Party or big corporations.

Jess King conceded defeat to incumbent Republican Lloyd Smucker in a speech at her watch party in Lancaster. “The vast majority of us, including me, have never been involved in a political campaign before. That right there is the number one outcome of this whole election. We got off the sidelines. We exercised our muscles of civic engagement, and they’re going to be stronger for the next fight,” she said. King’s grassroots campaign challenged a Republican establishment that until now has never been threatened, in Pennsylvania’s 11th Congressional District.
