Election Quotations

The political process does not end on Election Day. Young people need to stay involved in the process by continuing to pay attention to the conversation and holding their leaders accountable for the decisions they make.
Patrick Murphy

One of the reasons people hate politics is that truth is rarely a politician's objective. Election and power are.
Cal Thomas

Leadership is not about the next election, it's about the next generation.

Leadership can not be measured in a poll or even in the result of an election. It can only be truly seen with the benefit of time. From the perspective of 20 years, not 20 days.
