Welcome Home, Hillary!!!

Shortly before 4 a.m. EST Hillary Clinton’s campaign plane touched down at Westchester Airport for what is likely the last time. Press and staff deboarded, and a huge homeown crowd was on the tarmac awaiting and cheering her.

That’s Hillary’s van – those taillights you see.

She will be voting in Chappaqua later this morning, but what a marathon day it was! And what a campaign!  Despite all the vitriol from the other side, Hillary did a great job of staying on topic.

So we bid farewell to the Stronger Together big blue plane.  We hope a different plane is in her future.  For now, everyone is glad to have her back home, safe and sound.  Well done, Hillary!  Welcome home!

What we knew before the crowd at the North Carolina State William Neal Reynolds Coliseum knew it was that Bon Jovi was on the plane with all the Clintons when they left Philadelphia for Raleigh.  WJC was pretending to be deaf when Andrea Mitchell asked a question.

What none of us knew was that Lady Gaga would be at the rally. In a nod to Madeleine Albright, she sported a big, beautiful pin on the jacket of her pantsuit.  She spoke and then she performed with total Gaga gusto. (JSYK MSNBC cut into Mike Pence’s loud boring screech in Grand Rapids but did not let us hear Gaga sing at all.  Our poor ears.)

In other news, last night Madonna gave a free concert for Hillary in Greenwich Village’s Washington Square Park.  What a awesome night!

Chelsea introduced her dad, and he thanked Lady Gaga and Jon Bon Jovi.  He talked about the NC fights for voting and LGBT rights. Asked us not to quit until the polls close. He pointed out a sign in the hall about Hillary’s mom that said “Dorothy was right.” Then he talked about Hillary and how she is. Asked us to be there until the last person votes.

When Hillary came on the students started chanting her name and doing a bounce to “I believe she will win!”  Hillary praised their energy and enthusiasm.

Hillary spoke about the potential for joy, the choice between unity and division.

As the saying goes, that was all she wrote. Now it is up to all of us. Be there!  Vote!  Be there. Get your friends and family to vote.  Be there!  Watch your neighbors’ kids so they can vote.  Be there!  Give neighbors a lift to the polling location.  Be creative!  Imagine ways that you can move the vote forward.  Contact your local field office to see how you can pitch in.

Today is D-Day.  Happy Election Day, everyone, and thank you for all of your hard work! Thank you for your generosity.  You all are the best!  If you can, chipping in a few more dollars would also help.

If ever there could be a reminder of the republic that is at stake in this election, it was the optics of this rally in Philadelphia tonight. The crowd filled the space where the Declaration of Independence was first read to a crowd not quite so large.  The place where Benjamin Franklin, when asked what form of government was established, said, “A republic, madam, if you can keep it,” hosted Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen, Chelsea and President Bill Clinton, in that order, Michelle Obama, President Obama, and finally, the woman of the evening, Hillary Clinton who apparently stunned Hollywood fashionistas in her scarlet pantsuit.

Those of us who had followed her through the day knew that she had not changed her attire for this event.  She looked fresh as a rose, and her busy day was not ending there!  She moved on to a late night rally in Raleigh after Barack Obama played Hillary to Hillary’s Bill and escorted her offstage at the end.

Among the many memorable moments of the evening was the way Barack Obama, famous for mic drops, introduced Hillary. Since the mic was stationary and could not be dropped, he opted for a podium pound.

What a night!  Now we all have to make sure everyone votes tomorrow!  This is no time for complacency or letting John do it.  We have to do it!  It is up to us. All of us!

Friend —

Tomorrow is game day. Tomorrow will be the most consequential election of our lifetime.

So this is it — our final request of you: Please consider making one last contribution today to ensure Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine are elected to the White House tomorrow.

I want you to know you’ve done all that you can in this election. That no matter the results tomorrow, you are on record as giving everything you could to prevent a Donald Trump presidency.

As Hillary has been saying in her closing arguments:

“We believe in an America that is great because it is good, an America where women are respected, where immigrants are welcomed, where veterans are honored, where parents are supported, where workers are paid fairly, where marriage is a right, where discrimination is wrong, where everyone counts and everyone has a place.”

If you believe this, too, please stand with her one last time by making a final contribution today: www.hillaryclinton.com/donate/finance-email-hvf/?raiser=16837

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your hard work and friendship. Let’s win this together!

Hillary published a final op-ed of the campaign today.  Here are her words.

It’s been an amazing journey. Here’s what I’ll always remember.

We are truly stronger together.

At the beginning of this campaign, we gathered on Roosevelt Island, pledging to protect the progress we’ve made and explaining our vision for a stronger, fairer future.

It’s hard to believe that tomorrow, a year and a half later, America will finally begin its next chapter with a new president-elect.

I want to thank all the people across the country who’ve taken the time to talk to me during this journey. I’ve learned so much from your stories—about the challenges families are facing and the promises we have yet to fulfill.

I’ve met too many families who are living paycheck to paycheck, one illness or setback away from losing everything they’ve worked for. I’ve visited communities ravaged by drug addiction and heard from the doctors and social workers doing everything they can to save lives. I’ve talked to bright young DREAMers who worry their families will be torn apart. And I’ve gotten to know a remarkable group of mothers who’ve lost children to gun violence and have turned their grief into action.

These conversations have stayed with me throughout this campaign. And if I’m fortunate enough to serve as president, I’ll carry them with me to the White House.

Moms who lost their children to gun violence and police actions share why they support Hillary Clinton

I got into this race to fight for everyone who is working hard to give themselves and their families a bright future. I want to tear down all the barriers that stand in their way.

That means investing in good jobs that pay enough to support a family. It means raising the minimum wage so that no one working full time is forced to raise kids in poverty. It means guaranteeing paid leave so that families can care for a new baby or a sick relative. And it means investing in our young people with high-quality public schools and debt-free college.

But this election isn’t just about what we need to do—it’s also about who we are.

I know it’s been a long and difficult race. I’ve heard from so many people who are shaken by my opponent’s hateful, divisive rhetoric. One woman wrote to me about her son, Felix, who was adopted from Ethiopia as a baby. Felix is genuinely afraid that if my opponent wins, he’ll be taken from his parents and forced out of the only country he’s ever known. And his story is just one of many.

A lot of what we’ve seen and heard has been distressing, but we’ve also shared proud moments that remind us that we’re a country of fair-minded, big-hearted people. Millions of Americans—Republicans and Democrats alike—have stood up to say we’re better than this. And everywhere I go, I meet people who remind me of the diversity and determination that make this country great.

People like Astrid Silva, who I met in Las Vegas. Astrid came to this country from Mexico at 4 years old with nothing but a doll, a cross, and the dress she was wearing. Now she’s in her 20s, and she’s an advocate for immigrant families across the country.

People like Keith, a man I met in New Hampshire last year. Keith’s mother suffers from Alzheimer’s and needs constant care. He can’t afford adult day care, so he does the only thing he can–he brings his mom to work with him every single day.

People like Nakiya from Flint, Michigan, who is worried about her 6-year-old son, Jaylon. Like so many kids in Flint, Jaylon got sick from drinking tap water contaminated with lead, and now he’s having trouble in school.

These are the people who have kept me going when the road was tough. They’re the reason why I sweat the details of policy–because it’s not just a detail when it’s your child or your family. And I’ll be honored to fight for them as president.

Tomorrow caps an amazing journey. I’ll always be grateful for the organizers and volunteers who have taken our campaign to every state and territory, the supporters who have talked to their friends and neighbors, and the millions of Americans who have already begun casting ballots in this historic election.

Of course, the work we have to do is just beginning. It’s bigger than one president or even one generation. But what I’ve seen these past 17 months makes it clear to me that we’re up to the challenge, because we truly are stronger together.
