FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)-Political newcomer Democrat Courtney Tritch will not become our next Indiana 3rd Congressional District Representative in the U.S. House.
However, Tritch is in good spirits and her loss can inspire the beginning of change in the future.
She says she hopes the fight for affordable health care access for all Americans continues and hopes to see insurance companies always cover pre-existing conditions. it is also still a priority for Tritch to strengthen public schools, invest in early childhood education, and work to solve the student debt crisis. Tritch says she's thankful for all the the support from voters and especially her campaign team.
"I could not be more proud of my campaign. We ran it the way we wanted to run it, we didn't run it the way that everyone said we had to run it. We did some unusual things and we did some fun things and we always stayed positive because I knew I was doing it to honor the legacy of my parents and my sister and I didn't want to lose myself in that," said Tritch.
Tritch out-raised every democratic congressional candidate in the district in decades.
