To my biggest cheerleader, the guy who has always had my back, who believed in me even when I gave you lots of reasons not to, to the guy who taught me about community and giving back... I love you Dad. Hard not to feel eternal gratitude. Happy Father’s Day.

You know it’s been a good day when you find a whole bunch of Danes and Americans and Danish-Americans celebrating (early) Saint Hans Aften in my Congressional district complete with singing and the bonfire. We celebrated every year in Denmark with great friends. And now we celebrate at home too. Happy midsummer to all! 🇺🇸🇩🇰💪🏼

I talk a lot about traveling to each of the 37 cites and towns in this district over and over again, listening and learning. I talk about trust and faith and kindness and belief in our system and our democracy. With our first ad, I wanted to celebrate the people and the places of this remarkable third Congressional District that have touched me and made me believe even more... Because, after all, politics is all about people. I hope you enjoy. 🇺🇸💪🏻

In 1995, I marched in Boston Pride with my Mom and Dad behind a Bank of Boston banner, celebrating the commitment to community, diversity and LGBT equality. Today I marched again with my Mom and Dad and my husband behind a banner reading “Rufus for Congress” together with the absolute best team in politics. Completely humbled honored and choked up by this amazing journey. 🇺🇸🏳️‍🌈 #ma3

Easily the most humbling day of the campaign so far. This is what a grassroots army looks like. Rufus for Congress Campaign Fellows. #ma3

The after party of any political event is really where it’s at. As evidenced my my groovy niece, Avery. 💪🏼💕 #ma3 @jessicagnigrelli @andrewsentourage @annedgifford @popigif @ckgiffordjr @betsgiff @stephenjdevincent

Hilarious. In this photo we find an exceptionally jealous Argos who is not happy that I have decided to pick up an adorable Bernese puppy (named Rufus) at yesterday’s Concord office opening. Dogs rule.

Anyone who has spent time with the Cambodian-American community of Lowell knows how much they give back to this amazing city. So grateful to see how many came out last night in the rain to support our campaign. They know I am in this to protect Democracy and Human Rights both at home and abroad 🇺🇸🇰🇭

To the hundreds of thousands of #ma3 voters we’ve called over the last few months: 1) if you weren’t home we’re sorry we missed you and we’ll call back 2) if we disturbed your evening, we’re sorry and we’ll call back 3) if you were open to chatting with us about our campaign and taking our country back, we are incredibly grateful. Time to bring trust back one conversation at a time. 🇺🇸💪🏼
