I want to take a moment and thank the millions of voters who stood for hours in lines to cast their vote, in my opinion you are the real heroes of our victory yesterday.
To know that you stood, and stood strong, to exercise your right to vote, in the face of intimidation and suppression, you, you are the heroes that helped our nation move forward yesterday.
Without your dedication to democracy we might have seen an election stolen yesterday, the GOP did all it could to discourage you, to make it almost impossible for you to vote, they threatened you, they moved your polling places, they towed your cars, they closed when you were in line, but you persevered, and because of that we won.
And of course the other heroes of the day are the volunteers across this nation who made calls, knocked on doors and helped to get people to the polls.
We were outspent 81 to 19 percent yesterday, yet we won because of what you did.
Heroes to me, I will never forget what you did for me and our nation.
Thank you from my heart and soul.
