HILLARY CLINTON: I just want to say how much it means to me.
I’ve been very lucky to have so many friends in KeyLargo.
My dad, who worked at the hotel when I was growing up, died here.
And when I went to the funeral, I saw him in a limo.
So I said, “Hi, Daddy.”
And he said, I’m here for you.
He wanted to tell me that you’re the only person he ever had to thank.
He said, thank you.
And I said to him, “I’m going to do my best to do that for you, too.”
He said I was the only one.
And so I did.
I was proud of myself.
And he was proud too.
Let me tell you, I really believe that people like you make life worth living.
And we need to have the kind of lives that you and your family, who are so special, have.
So that you can continue to live a wonderful life and raise your family with dignity.
I just hope you can join me on the campaign trail and I’m sure you’ll have some great things to say.
I know you have the same kind of determination, the same enthusiasm, the kind that makes me want to do it for you too.
So thank you, Hillary.
Let’s get to work.
And God bless you.
Thank God for you and God bless America.
Let them know that, too.
And thank you for all of the hard work that you do every single day, especially for the hardworking people who are in KeyWest, Florida.
Let us work hard.
God bless, Hillary CLINTON.
PRESIDENT BIDEN: Thank you, Mrs. Clinton.
And welcome back to the campaign.
I’m honored to be with you tonight.
It’s a pleasure to have you on this stage.
And as we get ready to take the questions from the American people, let me just tell you about the tremendous work that we’ve done over the past two years.
We’re working hard, we’re investing big money in our campaign, we’ve been raising big money, we have an incredible grassroots campaign and we’re making real strides in the states.
We are making huge strides in states across America.
But let me talk about what I’m particularly proud of, because I’ve always been proud of the work that our volunteers do.
I think that what we’ve seen in Key West and in Florida is the most successful effort I’ve seen.
I don’t think we’ve ever seen a campaign raise the same amount of money from volunteers as KeyLarga has, or as I’m proud to say, the most important community event that the campaign has ever had, where volunteers have been in our community doing everything from delivering meals to going door to door.
And that’s exactly what we’re seeing right now.
And let me tell everyone who’s been listening.
You are helping the people of our country.
And you’re helping our country in ways that we never thought possible.
Thank the people who have come out to vote, who have supported us and given their time.
We thank the volunteers who are doing the hard-work of getting out the vote, going door-to-door, going to churches and churches and going door for the people, so that we can get to every one of our 2 million registered voters, who we know have never before been able to vote.
And what you’ve seen, in my view, is a real record of how well our volunteers are doing.
And they’ve done a great job.
And then I want to tell you a little bit about what the people are doing, and what we can do together to make America great again.
So here’s the deal.
We’ve been through a rough period, a very difficult period.
But the American spirit, the American will, is not going to be destroyed.
We have so much going on right now that we just have to find the courage to do the hard stuff.
And the hard thing is, we are going to have to do more, but we’ve got a plan to do this, and we have a plan for doing it.
And here’s what we have to say: I’m going first to the heartland.
I want you to go to your local precinct and tell them, “Please let me vote.”
And if you’re not allowed to, then you have a choice, I want everyone who wants to vote to get on the line.
They’re going to ask you questions, and you have to answer them.
And every person who wants a vote can vote.
If you are unable to vote because you’re sick, you can go to the doctor and they’ll take care of it.
If there’s a problem with your registration, you have 24 hours to get it corrected.
You can get
