Ninja Turtle Campaign

Here’s a memorable quote from a speech yesterday by newly elected state Democratic Party chair June O’Neill, explaining her unusual path to power:

“You know, there’s an old saying, if you ever see a turtle on a fence post, you know she didn’t get there by herself. So, speaking as the turtle on the fence post, on behalf of my team of ninja turtles, words are really inadequate to say thank you to all the people.”
