She began her victory speech by quoting the late congressman and civil rights leader John Lewis, who said, “Democracy is not a state, it’s not an act.” She also remembered her late mother and said, “While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last.” “When our very democracy was on the ballot in this election and the very soul of America was at stake and the world watching, you ushered in a new day for America.”
