Received this e-mail today from Governor Jared Polis (D. CO) in support of former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign:
The last weeks and months have exposed many hard truths about our nation — about racial injustice, about our public health system, and about how we treat our workers. One glaring, undeniable takeaway is that America needs new leadership in the White House. We need Joe Biden.
In the over a decade I worked with Joe Biden, I have known him to be caring, principled, honest, and, most of all, an extraordinarily effective problem-solver. When I served in Congress, we made critical progress together to make health care more affordable across the country, strengthen our public education system, and bring our economy back from the brink of collapse.
I have never been more motivated to cast my ballot and I am going to do everything I possibly can to elect Joe Biden the next President of the United States. I hope you will join me in doing the same.
I also know that times are tough right now for many people, and not everyone has the ability to donate. You can still make a huge impact by volunteering for Joe’s campaign and sharing his message on social media.
At a time when Americans are so focused on what divides us, Joe Biden focuses on bringing us together. At a time when other politicians deliberately play on people’s worst instincts, Joe Biden seeks to bring out the best in each of us and unite us. And at a time when lies and misinformation from the highest levels increasingly make it hard to find the truth, Joe Biden has the courage and character to speak honestly to the American people.
Despite the challenges we face today, I believe America can make great progress in the years ahead. We can break down the barriers to justice and opportunity that so many people face. We can build a fairer and more resilient economy, and create a world-class education system across this country.
But to make that vision a reality some things need to change — and it starts with bringing integrity, honesty, and decency back to the White House.
