Obama: "If Michelle Nunn Wins, That Means Democrats Keep Control Of The Senate"

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Right now we’ve got a House Republican leadership that just says no to everything, says no to minimum wage, says no to fair pay, and they came in in 2010 during these Midterm elections where people weren’t paying attention, the Tea Party got energized, we did not vote, and we’ve for the last four years had a Congress that hasn’t worked.

And these last two years I want a Congress that does work, and the only way I can do that, even though I’m not on the ballot, is to make sure that our people turn out to vote, that young people and black folks and latinos and progressives and people who share a vision of making sure that this economy works for everybody and not just a few people, that those folks turn out and when we do, we win, and no place is a better example than in Georgia.

Michelle Nunn will win the Senate if there is high turnout among Democrats. And if there is low turnout or just ordinary turnout, then she won’t win. And if Michelle Nunn wins, that means that Democrats keep control of the Senate, and that means that we can keep on doing some good work.

So it is critically important to make sure that folks vote, and if people are aware, you’ve got early vote in Georgia, I voted today in Illinois, we’ve got early vote. There weren’t any lines, I walked in, got it done in ten minutes, and the same is true in Georgia, and if you don’t know how to vote early, don’t know where your polling place is you can go to: and that will direct you to where you need to go. But I need everybody who is listening today to go ahead and not just you, but you’re friends, your family, your neighbors, coworkers, take them to the polls, make sure they vote.
