GOTV Rally on Independence Mall with Hillary Clinton, President Obama, Michelle Obama, President Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi.
At a rally the night before Election Day, Hillary Clinton will campaign in Philadelphia, joined by President Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, President Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton, on Independence Mall on Monday, November 7. The Clintons and Obamas will also be joined at the event by Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi, who will perform.
With Independence Hall as the backdrop, Clinton will urge Pennsylvanians to make history on Tuesday by electing her president so she can continue pushing for the American ideals of progress, inclusion, equality and strength that our founders enshrined in our Constitution there in 1787.
Here’s a transcript of Bruce Springsteen’s powerful statement:
It’s an honor to be here with President and Mrs. Obama, President Clinton and Chelsea, and if we all do our part tomorrow, President Elect Clinton.
Yes, yes. The choice tomorrow couldn’t be any clearer. Hillary’s candidacy is based on intelligence, experience, preparation, and on an actual vision of an America where everyone counts, men and women, white and black, Hispanic and native, where folks of all faiths and backgrounds can come together to address our problems in a reasonable and thoughtful way.
That vision of America is essential to sustain, no matter how difficult its realization. Hillary sees an America where the issue of income distribution should be at the forefront of our national conversation, where the progress we’ve made in reducing unemployment is not enough, we must do better. She has a vision of universal health care for all that will build on the work of President Obama.
She sees an America that needs to be fairer, where our highest courts look to protect the rights of all of our citizens and not just the privileged. She sees an America where the issue of immigration reform is dealt with realistically and compassionately.
And she calls to an America that participates in the welfare of our planet, both in world affairs and in global science, and where the unfinished business of protecting the rights of women is not an afterthought but a priority.
It’s the country where we are indeed, and indeed we will all be stronger together.
Now briefly, to address her opponent… this is a man whose vision is limited to little beyond himself, who has the profound lack of decency that would allow him to prioritize his own interests and ego before American democracy itself.
Somebody who’d be willing to damage our long-cherished and admired system, rather than look to himself for the reasons behind his own epic failure. That’s unforgivable.
Tomorrow, those ideas and that campaign is going down.
Let’s all do our parts so we can look back on 2016 and say, “We stood with Hillary Clinton on the right side of history.”
That’s why I’m standing here with you tonight for the dream of a better America.
