| Hey there. I’m Joe Biden, and I’m writing to you about a truly special moment in our campaign.|
This afternoon, Secretary Clinton announced she’s endorsing us. I’m so proud to have her support.
I got to see first-hand what an extraordinary leader Hillary was in the U.S. Senate. When I was Vice President and she was Secretary of State, we would often meet for breakfast meetings at the Vice President’s residence when we were both in town. That’s where I got to see why she was such a powerful, respected and admired voice all across the world. Hillary has long had the courage to speak out against the worst impulses in our country and the world — and to stand up for the best in us.
Hillary’s candidacy was historic. It is long overdue that we have a woman in the White House. I’ve already made public that my Vice President and partner in campaigning and governing will be a woman. For me, it’s the obvious, necessary and right choice.
In 2016, you and millions of others built one of the most impressive operations our party and country has ever seen. Volunteers, donors, and grassroots supporters that were passionate and organized and worked day in and day out for Hillary.
I know, for some of you, you are hesitant to get involved again on a campaign. I understand that. I am going to do everything I can to earn your support and your trust.
And I’m here to tell you that you’re not only welcome as part of this campaign: you’re needed.
The only way that we’ll defeat Donald Trump is with a broad coalition of folks working together to win what I have been calling a battle for the soul of our nation.
I’m not here to ask you for money — I know first I have to earn it. So I’m asking you to think about what is at stake, give me a chance, and join my campaign.I’M IN FOR JOE’S CAMPAIGN ➞This endorsement means a lot. I was so proud to support Hillary in 2016, and it means a lot that she’s supporting me now.
If you join me, we can win the battle for the soul of the nation. And by the way, when I say that, I’m not being nostalgic. I’m not trying to take us back to a country that never existed. The foundational principles of our country — that all men and women are created equal — are ones that we’ve never lived up to. But we’ve never given up trying to live up to them.
It is not enough to “go back” to anything. We have to take immediate, bold action to tackle the climate crisis. We have to relieve a generation of the crushing burden of student debt. We have to make healthcare a right and not a privilege. And to get there, we’re going to need millions of grassroots supporters to take action right away.
If you join our campaign, we will not just defeat Donald Trump. We will not just win the battle for the soul of our nation. We will transform it too.
To close, I will humbly ask:
Will you join my campaign today? I’d be honored if you did.Thank you for everything,
