Happy Thanksgiving. Mark Herring.

Dear David,
I just wanted to send you a quick note to wish you and your family a happy Thanksgiving.
Among the many things that I'm thankful for this year is the tremendous support you've shown me time and time again over the course of this recent campaign. Without it, I would not have the honor of continuing to serve... the people of Virginia as...Attorney General for another four years.
Our campaign was always about people and about doing what's right for Virginians and their families. That's why families who have a loved one struggling with addiction and families who are struggling to afford health care will also be on my mind this Thanksgiving. I'm committed to continuing to fight for them – and for all Virginians – and I know you'll be right there with me.
So while we give thanks for our many blessings, let's also recommit ourselves to continuing to fight for a more just and equal Virginia with greater opportunity for all.
Thank you,

Before the Turkeys done... Ed Markey.

Before the turkey is carved or the sweet potatoes are baked, I think it's important we all take a minute to remember what this day is really about -- acknowledging all the blessings around us.

I am blessed to serve the people of Massachusetts in the United States Senate. I'm blessed to have you fighting beside me.

I want to thank you for all that you do David. Thank you.

Today, my only ask for you is to keep in your thoughts and prayers all those who cannot spend this day with their families -- the members of our armed services defending our freedom overseas and the diplomatic corps working for peace.

Happy Thanksgiving.


Thanks for all you do. Cory Booker (info@corybooker.com)


Taking time for reflection and continuing to express deep appreciation for all the good in our lives is so important. That’s why I love the Thanksgiving season.

I have so much to be thankful for this year, including friends and supporters like you who continue to motivate, inspire, and provide a constant source of positive energy.

From my home in Newark, New Jersey, to your home, I hope you have a happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

During this special time of the year, I hope we all can find peace and express gratitude. I hope we can speak with compassion, and listen with love.

And use that energy that comes from giving thanks to do good in our homes, our communities, and our country.

Thank you for all that you do,

Grateful this Thanksgiving.


It’s almost Thanksgiving -- a special day for families around this country and our beloved commonwealth.

As you’re reading this, if you’re anything like me, you’re probably in the final, frenzied stages of preparing for the holiday -- picking up the turkey from the grocery store, pulling out the silverware, and running last-minute errands.
We all have our own Thanksgiving traditions, but they usually involve gathering with loved ones to celebrate what we’re most grateful for. And as my family and I get ready to sit down for Thanksgiving dinner, I want to share what I’m thankful for this year.

David, I’m thankful for my family. My husband Andrew and sons, Matthew and Jamie, have supported me throughout my career in public service, from my first run for public office through this campaign.
I’m thankful for the surge in grassroots enthusiasm our country has seen over the past year. We saw that here in Virginia earlier this month, when an outpouring of energy lifted Democrats up and down the ballot, including many women and first-time candidates, to victory.

I’m thankful for you, too, David. This campaign relies on people like you -- supporters committed to electing new leadership and making progress for our community. With your help, I’ll continue fighting for the 10th district. Thank you.
Happy Thanksgiving,

Thank you for everything. Chad Griffin.

This week, as we gather with friends and family to give thanks for what really matters, I will be thinking about you and all you do to make our work possible, David.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
It was your steadfast support that kept me, and the entire team at HRC, fighting for equality, even in the toughest of times. Together, we have accomplished a lot. And together, we will accomplish so much more.
I am so grateful for you, and your commitment to our work. It matters. You matter.
Happy Thanksgiving,

Chad Griffin

Join me in giving thanks. Cecile Richards.

Planned Parenthood

On any given day, more than 8,000 patients visit a Planned Parenthood health center. And that's thanks to our truly amazing doctors, nurses, and staff who work day in and day out to provide quality, compassionate health care.

No matter what's happening in Congress, no matter who the president is, no matter what — Planned Parenthood doctors, nurses, and staff get up every day to do the work they do best: helping patients get safe, affordable, nonjudgmental care from a provider they trust.

That's why I'm taking this week to reflect on all their work, and to send a wholehearted "thank you" to these health care workers. Will you join me in sending Planned Parenthood doctors, nurses, and health center staff a message of gratitude? We'll be sending these messages on Friday, so don't miss your chance!
Planned Parenthood doctor
Say Thanks »
I've had the privilege over the years of hearing firsthand from patients about their Planned Parenthood experiences. Patients like Sage, who was sexually abused as a child and was afraid to go to a gynecologist for many years. Sage finally sought care at a Planned Parenthood health center when she was 25. The doctor she met with immediately put her at ease and assured her she would do whatever she could to get Sage the care she needed.

"That was the first time that I felt like I was in control of my body and what was about to happen to it," Sage says. "It's something that could have never happened without Planned Parenthood...I will be forever grateful."

This is what Planned Parenthood is all about: the simple but powerful idea that each and every person deserves compassionate health care to live a stronger, more independent life. It's at the heart of everything we do, and no one better embodies this value than Planned Parenthood health center staff.

Join me this Thanksgiving in sending a message of gratitude to these tenacious Planned Parenthood health center workers.

From all of us at Planned Parenthood, thank you for all that you do to make sure every person gets the care they need.

All my best,
Cecile Richards, President
Planned Parenthood Federation of America

Dear David,
I wanted to take a moment to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. On this day, I’m always deeply grateful to have the opportunity to represent the people of the First Congressional District of Rhode Island and to fight for the issues that matter most to you.

I'm also mindful that all of us owe an eternal debt of gratitude to our men and women in uniform who have sacrificed so much to protect us and the country we love.

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year to be with family and friends to share in all the blessings that America has to offer. It also provides us with the opportunity to remember what is truly important in our lives and to reflect on our obligations to those less fortunate in our community.

Over the past year, our country has encountered serious challenges, but the strength of Americans like you has helped us to remain strong and committed to building a more just and prosperous world. I want to thank you for your many contributions to our community and our country and wish you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving.
Warm Regards,

David Cicilline
Member of Congress
