Dem candidate for Congress - MA 3. Former Ambassador, 10 yr Obama alum, optimist, husband, believes America is already great (but far from perfect)
Amazing weekend. From rallying in Concord to speaking up for Democracy in Cambodia to neighborhood tours and coffees and conversations in Fitchburg, Pepperell, Townsend and Gardner. And then home again to recharge. Another week ahead and more encouraged than ever... 🇺🇸
No words for this one. Surrounded by so much love and support from family and friends today. Here with my Dad. So damn grateful.
Yes. This one fires me up. Not just this week but always. I can’t wait to march alongside all of you on March 24. #neveragain
What campaigns need to be all about: Handshakes. Eye contact. Stories. Conversation. Person to person. Home to home. Thanks to the people (and dogs) of Lowell for a wonderful Sunday. #ma3 🇺🇸
We’re both a few years older and a few years grayer. We’ve seen the world and come home again. You are my world and my home. Happy Valentine’s Day @stephenjdevincent . ❤️
Friday night. No day off in sight but feeling grateful for the quiet moments. ❤️
Talked politics and my campaign with an old boss tonight. Damn how I miss this guy. 🇺🇸 #ma3
Best day of the campaign so far. Fellowship training for our super volunteers and the next generation of political leaders. The next time someone tells you young people are not interested in shaping their own future, I challenge you to come to one of our trainings. You can’t help but be fired up. 💪🏼 🔥 #ma3
Hanging out with Rowdy the Riverhawk at the 20th anniversary of the Tsongas arena watching UML beat BC.... kind of the perfect Friday night, right?
Found this tonight. Sometimes unpacking reveals amazing gems like this one Stephen found in an old briefcase. From a trip through California with one of my heroes, Michelle Obama, several years ago. Feels emotional to see today - one year after they left the White House. And somehow appropriate as we all march today as citizens in cities and towns across the country. #womensmarch2018
Cold as hell but ending a busy day in the best way possible. Go Pats! @stephenjdevincent
Seems like a great place to get started. I hope you all come see us... Right in Downtown Lowell. 👍🇺🇸
Bomb cyclone. Snow bomb. Bombogenesis. Whatever you want to call it, after five minutes of euphoria, Argos has had enough and wants his legs back. ❄️☃️💨
Ten years ago tonight, as we endured the bitter cold of a Des Moines night, we celebrated as Barack Obama won the Iowa caucus. Today, on a frigid day in Massachusetts, I walked into my first ever campaign office in Lowell. Nothing but barren walls, old folding tables and lights that barely work. Perfect. Could not be more fired up. 🇺🇸
New Year’s Day. The presents have been opened. 🎁 The cakes have been eaten. 🎂 The champagne has been drunk. 🍾 The campaign goals have been met. 💰 So much ahead of us and we’ll start tomorrow. Today is just about moments like this. Happy New Year my dear friends. Wishing each and every one of you much health and happiness in 2018. ❤️ 📷 : @stephenjdevincent
Friends - Before we say good riddance to 2017 I have one last ask of you: Tonight at midnight is the very first filing deadline of my campaign and I want to show the largest numbers of grassroots supporters imaginable! We are so close to our goal and with your support we can get there. 1) like this post 2) click on the link in my bio and give what you can 3) comment on this post and let us know that you are! I promise we will all be toasting you tonight! 🍾🎉 P.s. only American citizens or green card holders can contribute, but I hope all will spread the word to their American friends!
This last year was one of the hardest of my life. But I just saw this... From sad goodbyes to wonderful homecomings to a visit with the queen to performing weddings and celebrating anniversaries. What do my #2017bestnine liked posts on Instagram have in common? They are all about people. Connection. Laughter. Love. With all of the challenges, I will try to remember 2017 that way. But more importantly hold onto a sense of profound hope for 2018. Thank you all. ❤️, Rufus
Christmas morning. Snow is falling. And Santa never looked better (or more enthusiastic). We wish you and your families an abundance of peace and joy. 🎄🎅🏼 🎁 ❄️
Oh Dad... not sure I’ve ever been jealous of your clothes. But this time, I think I am... Merry Christmas to all. 🎄🎅🏼
City to city. Town to town. Neighborhood to neighborhood. Street to street. House to house. Person to person. Spent the last few days traveling to every corner of the district and listening. Impossible not to have hope when you spend time with people like this... 🇺🇸
Suffice it to say Argos has had a good morning. ❄️ + 🐶 = 🎉
City to city. Town to town. Street to street. Home to home. Person to person. If you’re not home we’ll come back. This is how we take the country back. Every person counts. Vote. Here talking to voters in Fitchburg about State Senate candidate Sue Chalifoux Zephir. Vote tomorrow.
Work for the day is done. Now a little father/son time on a spectacular November day.
Tomorrow is the day we all express gratitude. I have to start one day early. Six years ago today Argos was born. Life is never better than a walk along the beach with you. Happy birthday my sweet boy. 🎂 🍰 @stephenjdevincent
Yup. This is happening. Please join the team today! Rufusgifford.com
They have taken me from the icy top of the world to the choppy seas of the Mediterranean. They have flown me the speed of sound and left me with a map and some MREs in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the night. But every minute of every day they taught me about discipline, service, honor, dedication and heart. Every day of serving with the men and women of the military was a profound honor unlike any other in my life. You are as good as it gets. Happy Veterans Day.
Different Starbucks. Different day. The same wonderful message from a complete stranger. Feeling so grateful. Thank you Lasse. 🇺🇸🇩🇰❤️
On the final week of my European trip before heading back home to officially begin the next chapter of my life, I’m overwhelmed and humbled to have @theatlantic share our unexpected story. 🇺🇸🇩🇰
Feeling nostalgic today. Thinking back to the days not so long ago when we had a President who would take time out of a black tie event to straighten the tie of a guest. Kindness and decency. Sigh. 🇺🇸😊 #tbt
The kindness of strangers makes the world a better place... and the greeting I get on my Starbucks cup when I land in Copenhagen says it all. Great to be back... Thank you Mads. 🇺🇸🇩🇰 @Starbucks
Boston - Copenhagen. Off for a couple of weeks to talk about the America I have seen in the last 9 months since returning home. One that is fiercely passionate, engaged and constantly fighting for the American values that seem so far from the politics of this White House. Hope is crucial in times like this and though it is tested every day, I am still full of hope. Looking forward to seeing you all out there. 🇺🇸
