Thank you 1,086 Tennesseeans

According to the Associated Press, with 95% of precincts reporting, 1086 Tennesseans honored (or humored) me by making me their choice for Governor. Thank you. That left me only 1,296,572 votes behind Bill Lee, so it was super close. It was a real nail biter at the #RiDEN4TN headquarters last night, and we’re all really worn out but I wanted to take this time to thank everybody who listened to me scream about these things over and over for the last year and a half or so. I do care about this stuff and I’m not done fighting about it. I hope Bill Lee comes up with a better plan than praying that Tennessee’s problems just fix themselves. I don’t think he will, but I hope. I hope I can handle not being Governor. It’s gonna be tough. Please come see me piece my life/act back together as I get out and start doing more shows. I promise I won’t talk politics (for a while). I don’t know how I’m going to find another source of endless fodder as rich as this election cycle. I’m just proud that my campaign lasted longer than Diane Black, Craig Fitzhugh, Mae Beavers, Randy Boyd and all the other dunces who spent MILLIONS of dollars to lose the same race I lost, spending Nothing. May Megatheos bless you, Megatheos bless Tennessee and Megatheos bless the United States of America!
