Received this e-mail today from former President Barack Obama in support of former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign:
The most important election of our lifetimes is just around the corner. In November, we have the chance to rebuild our economy so that it works for everyone. We have the chance to cover everybody with health insurance. We have the chance to declare that no matter what we look like, where we come from, or who we love — all of us are equal and each of us should have the chance to make of our lives what we will.
This is a critical moment in our history — and we need Americans of all backgrounds and political stripes to join together and fight to create a more just, more generous, more democratic America where everybody has a fair shot at opportunity.
That’s why I am so excited to be joining my friend Joe Biden to talk about his vision for the country. I hope you’ll join us for our first virtual grassroots event on Tuesday, June 23, at 5:15 pm eastern.
I’m proud of the way Joe is building his campaign — from the ground up with folks like you at the heart of it. In fact, grassroots donors have contributed 97% of the donations to his campaign.
But there’s a lot of work left to do over these next five months. And each of us — you, me, and everybody else — have to do our part to make sure that our country lives up to its highest ideals.
That’s why I hope you’ll start by coming to the grassroots fundraiser with Joe and me next week:
See you there,
