"I'm incredibly proud of Hillary Clinton's historic candidacy. Her campaign reflected her lifelong dedication to lifting others up, her insistence on fighting for children and families, and her belief that we are stronger together. These are values that she has always held deeply in her heart, and that have remained at the center of her remarkable record of public service to our nation. I know that her life's work will continue to be an example and inspiration to young women across America and the world, and I'm so grateful for her service, leadership, and friendship.
"As Hillary stated so eloquently today, we must now respect the peaceful transition of power and come together as a nation around the common ideals we all share as Americans."
