My sincere thanks to all who attended yesterday’s brunch in support of my reelection campaign — and thanks also to all who could not attend, but supported the event from afar. Catie and I are deeply grateful for the confidence and generosity of so many friends.

During my remarks, I mentioned that photographs of Jeremy and Owen posted on my website routinely received more hits and responses than substantive issue-based articles, and I joked that, therefore, the kids would be placed front and center during the weeks prior to the election. In this shameless spirit, I present the accompanying picture of Owen, taken during the brunch and perfectly capturing his disposition through most of the event: bored out of his mind.
