“I wanted to send you a note so that you could see who we’re up against on Nov 3. We can do better. We must do better.”

“In the face of death, I saw ordinary Americans become heroes. In our darkest hour, when our survival depended on each other, my men and I learned an important lesson. We all bleed red. Our differences did not define us. United, we were unbeatable.”

I stand here tonight calling on all Americans to join us. It doesn’t matter what you look like, who you love, how you worship, your gender or your job. If you’re a traditional Democrat who has become disillusioned with how radical your party has become, then stand with us. You are most welcome. America needs all patriots to rush to her defense. I promise you this, in our tent, you are free. Free to speak the truth. Choose your journey, define your life. You have the power to go as far as you aim and aim higher and keep going because that is what Americans do. We are idealists and dreamers, lovers of adventure. We’re rugged and independent. We don’t make excuses. We make the impossible a reality.”

“I watched with alarm as the party of my grandfather, a lifelong union Democrat, turned against the very people it professed to represent. I watched as Joe Biden spit venom at an autoworker who dared question his intent to take the Second Amendment and your guns. Where Democrats once stood for law abiding Americans who displayed our flags with pride, this new Democrat Party considers these people uneducated racists, clinging to guns and bibles.”
