“Politics CAN be kind and fun. It can be accessible and effective. Let’s imagine that possibility together,” she wrote in another post.

In a third post, she opened up about the last one week, writing: “What a week filled with such incredible highs, lows, highs. Life usually comes that way, in waves. I’ve been running on little sleep & lots of gratitude. We’ve had to face these waves slightly more public than most but please know we’ve never felt alone.”
