“I’m deeply honored and humbled by the trust fellow conservative voters have placed in me to be their voice in the State House,” said DiCeglie. “We celebrate tonight but look forward to building on our accomplishments – bringing our message of commonsense conservative solutions to voters to earn their vote in the November General Election. I can’t thank my family, friends, supporters and volunteers enough for their dedication to this campaign. We couldn’t have done this without their hard work.”
