Washington, D.C. –
 “Thank you, Doro, for that warm introduction, and for carrying your mom’s torch forward, so that it continues to shine brightly for future generations.

And thank you all for being here tonight in support of such a worthy and important cause.

Many of you have likely heard the story of how I met my husband, Joe, and became a mom to two little boys and the wife of a U.S. Senator. But you may not have heard about what came after we said “I do.”
