The nation as you know -- at a critical point.
At a time like this we can't risk partisan bickering and political posturing.
Our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the people's work and -- citizens also have to ride to the occasion.

I believe in the people of America.
And I ran for office because I'm concerned about America.

I believe that the principles upon which this nation was founded.
Are the only sure guide to a resurgent economy.
And -- greatness.
Like so many -- you Paul and I have left everything on the field we have given our all to this campaign.
