I was pleased to join fellow Democrats tonight to discuss what is at stake this election. 2016 will indeed be another 'change' election – a moment when we make history by electing Hillary Clinton as President of the United States.
While Hillary Clinton and Democrats in Maryland believe we are stronger together, Republicans up and down the ballot continue to tell the American people: 'you're on your own.' That's why we're working hard to ensure Democrats are elected this November, and I thank all of the volunteers who are making calls, knocking on doors, and getting our message out to voters so that they are fired up and ready to turn out the vote for Hillary Clinton, Tim Kaine, Chris Van Hollen, and Anthony Brown.
I'm proud to stand with the League of Conservation Voters in fighting for a cleaner, sustainable environment.
Thank you, fellow Democrats. I’m honored to be here with you tonight to celebrate our ‘Democrat of the Year’ and to pay tribute to all those who have been working hard over the past year to advance the causes of opportunity, justice, and equality in Southern Maryland. I want to highlight in particular the enormous role that Democratic women have played in the fight for these values and for a better future for our communities and our country.
I was pleased to meet with Chris Van Hollen and community leaders in Charles and St. Mary’s Counties today to discuss how we can work together to continue to strengthen these facilities, which are critical to our economy and national security.
