Two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton touted her political action committee on Wednesday for playing a role in Tuesday night's Democratic Party electoral victories.

Clinton launched Onward Together back in May to advance "the progressive vision that earned nearly 66 million votes in the last election" and to build "a brighter future for generations to come by supporting groups that encourage people to organize and run for office," Politico reported.

Clinton said Tuesday night's victories were a "great reminder" of what Democrats can do if they are unified and fight for what they believe in.

"So I wanted to take a few minutes to celebrate the extraordinary successes of a few groups I—and Onward Together—proudly fight alongside," Clinton tweeted.

She went on to send a series of tweets thanking multiple groups that her organization supported, including Swing Left, Emerge America, Color of Change, Indivisible and Run for Something.

Clinton also thanked some of the national Democratic organizations for their efforts in helping Democrats win. The Democratic National Committee, EMILY's List, and the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee were a few of the organizations credited.

"As we celebrate, let’s also remember the work ahead. Proud that groups that Onward Together supports—including @SwingLeft, which is laser-focused on taking back the House—have been making incredible progress in the fight for 2018 and beyond. Onward!" Clinton wrote.

Democrats swept the top three races in Virginia by giving Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam, lieutenant governor candidate Justin Fairfax, and incumbent attorney general candidate Mark Herring victories over the Republican candidates. Democrats also diminished the supermajority Republicans previously held in the Virginia House of Delegates.
