Somehow this seems right this morning. Since #presidenttrump made this statement from the very stage #amymcgrath had to make her final speech from last night.

I’ve been following Amy McGrath’s campaign for Congress against Republican incumbent Andy Barr since the primary in May. Amy is a former Marine, a fighter pilot and a mother. She used to write letters to her own congressmen and senators when she was a kid asking why women can’t serve in combat, and got back responses that women needed to “be protected”. She later became the first woman marine to fly an F-18 in combat. She’s never taken no for an answer, and both her parents always encouraged her to break barriers. Her opponent spent millions of dollars on attack ads against her, but McGrath refused to respond with her own— instead she became known for saying “Is that all you got?”. The McGrath team allowed me to photograph her at home with her kids, campaigning in some of her 19 counties to loyal supporters, and in their hotel as the results came in last night. It was neck and neck for most of the night, but eventually Barr took the lead and retained his seat in Congress. Thank you to the McGrath campaign for allowing me to show a side of politicians and elections you don’t always see. I am grateful. Swipe 👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼 for the last couple of days leading up to the election results with Amy. For @nytimes.

#onewomanoneday Many positives from the mid terms: the Democrats took back the house; many women, young people and minorities elected, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest woman to be elected to Congress. But many casualties also, including Amy McGrath, Stacey Abrams and Claire McCaskill. On the whole, however, I feel pretty deflated. The Republicans held the Senate, lots of pro lifers elected, and it’s clear that especially in rural areas there is a swathe of xenophobic voters and the cultural chasm is deepening. America needs a unifier, but with Trump in office it is impossible for that person to emerge as last night shows he can only benefit from partisanship and, sadly, racism. Let’s all move to Sweden or maybe Oprah is the answer 🇸🇪 #usmidterms2018 #alexandraocasiocortez #staceyabrams #amymcgrath

I didn’t take a post voting selfie right after I voted because I was unshowered and in my uniform. So here it is! I have a blue sweatshirt nearby to keep me warm and dry while riding this blue wave! #GOTV #AmyMcGrath #ElectionDay

#KENTUCKY BOSS GIRLS: you still have a few hours left to #vote in the #midtermelections, and #AmyMcGrath needs your support in her bid for Congress! A former fighter pilot and Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Marine Corps, Amy has an inherent drive to serve something greater than herself -- namely, her country. She wants to bolster the economy, fight for #womensrights, work towards a solution to climate change, and most of all, remind Congress who they work for (you!). Get out there and #VOTE, and reminds your friends and family to do the same!.

I Voted... • ...because we are fortunate enough to have that right • ...because far too many politicians are out of touch with middle-class Americans • ...because our ancestors fought for minorities and women to vote • ...because our liberties are at stake • ...because sometimes the only way to show out is to SHOW UP! •

Let your vote be your roar. GO VOTE and help be the change you wish to see in the world! •

One of my earliest voting memories is standing in line with my mom in a church basement and watching her fill out her ballot. Happy to bring Connor with me on his first of many election days. Go vote!!! #govote #electionday #democracy #amymcgrath #babyboy #ctg
