Friends and Supporters,

Today I learned of the tragic death of Ryan Uhre, a young man who served in my legislative office as an intern.

In light of this news, I am canceling tonight's fundraiser for my campaign.

I encourage you to keep Ryan's family in your prayers tonight, and over the coming days.
