THE PRESIDENT:  Jaime, thanks, pal.  You recognize, that introduction is slightly excessive for me, however I let you know what, it’s not on your management.

And, Chris, you’ve completed a hell of a job, pal.  You’ve gotten actually completed one unimaginable job.  And thanks for main in our finance effort.  And the actual fact you had Virginia McGregor from Scranton with you, that — that helped slightly bit too.  Anyway.  (Laughs.)

Look, I simply went via the numbers.  Let me say (inaudible) as nicely — I do know you simply stated it — as a result of I understand how arduous it’s to lift a complete of $292 million this cycle.  I need you to know the way grateful I’m, how a lot it issues to everybody, how a lot it issues to our possibilities.  And I need you to know that, , you helped get me and Kamala elected in 2020, and also you raised some huge cash for us as nicely, however you helped generate help for our agenda over the last virtually two years.

You saved us going.  You helped — you helped generate a lot.  We received some actually massive issues completed.  And a number of the most consequential issues ever achieved by the narrowest of margins, the 50-50 Senate.  I instructed Kamala, each time she votes, she wins.  And he or she does.

And so we’ve got a shot at protecting the Senate and growing it.  And I’m optimistic in regards to the Home as nicely.

You recognize, you guys characterize all the pieces that’s good about our celebration, the rationale why we received into politics within the first place.  We received concerned in politics first place to assist folks.  We helped them get via the pandemic, helped them cope with the crises all of them face, helped them with their healthcare, helped them throughout the board to tackle highly effective particular pursuits, notably Pharma.

You recognize, and we — (laughs) — I’ve been doing this for a very long time.  We lastly beat Pharma due to your assist.

You recognize, we tackle highly effective particular pursuits working to provide the center class only a shot, simply a good likelihood.  As my dad used to say, “I don’t anticipate the federal government to resolve my drawback, however I ex- — I simply anticipate them to know my drawback.”

So, what — right here’s what we did.  We went on the market, we took on these pursuits, we gave the center class a combating likelihood, we received much more to do — defend the local weather and American jobs and ingenuity.

We handed the most important local weather invoice ever, ever in American historical past — virtually $400 billion.

It issues.  It issues.  It’s simply starting to take maintain.  We did all the pieces from the — anyway — we — I gained’t go into a complete all the pieces we received completed.  However we additionally — most significantly, I believe — fought to guard the basic rights and freedoms that carry folks into the political course of and ensure this democracy delivers.

That’s what being a Democrat is all about.  It’s not about energy for energy’s sake; it’s about gaining energy to work for individuals who want slightly little bit of assist, only a shot.  My dad used to say, “Only a shot.  Only a shot.  Just a bit little bit of respiration room.”  And that’s what Democrats are all about.  Once more, not energy for powers sake, however energy for the great of the nation.

And, , I do know it’s not simple — transfer this up.  I do know it’s not simple.  We’re up towards a number of the darkest forces we’ve ever seen in our historical past.

These MAGA Republicans are a unique breed of cat.  This isn’t your father’s Republican Occasion.  It’s a unique deal.  And that’s what you — that’s why what you probably did is so essential since you are — we’re on this election when historical past suggests we shouldn’t be; we ought to be being blown away.

Along with your help, we’ve been in a position to get voters registered, get them to vote early, get them totally engaged, get them excited, and making them perceive that this issues.  It issues a lot.

We’ve received yet another evening to do all the pieces we are able to to win — one other, in all probability, 30 hours between the final ballot clo- — when the final ballot will shut.  So let’s go win this factor.

And it doesn’t matter what occurs tomorrow, we want you within the path forward.  We actually do.  We’re simply getting began.  We’re simply getting began.  And we’ve got a lot extra we are able to do and to be happy with.

So, as soon as once more, thanks, thanks, thanks.  You recognize, you’re an unimaginable group of individuals.  And the best way you’ve gone on the market and by no means let a second go by with out making our case is simply unimaginable.

So I need to thanks once more.  God bless you all.  And should God defend our troops.

And, by the best way, you heard me say it a thousand occasions.  As my Grandpop Finnegan used to say once I walked out the door, “Joey, preserve the religion.”  And my grandmother would yell, “No, Joey, unfold it.”

You’re spreading the religion.  It actually issues to our democracy.  The remainder of the world is trying to us as nicely — not simply of us at residence, the remainder of the world.  And also you’re permitting us to do it.

Thanks, thanks, thanks.
