“To accept defeat with dignity and grace and a heart filled with hope is what this election season has taught me. I have the utmost respect for the leaders I voted for after seeing them handle their loss,” she said.

Calzado then extended her prayers to the candidates who will be seated in position, while also thanking fellow supporters who she met during the campaign period.
