George, I want to thank you for having my back on this long journey we’ve been on together.
No matter how you supported this team — whether you chipped in a couple of bucks to keep the train running, made a few phone calls, knocked on your neighbors’ doors, or if you just kept us in your prayers throughout this race — I’m so grateful for you.
Right now, millions of Americans are exercising their sacred right to participate in our democracy by voting in schools, community centers, and public places around the country. And they join over 95 million people who voted before today.
They’re doing it facing challenges and circumstances that our generation of Americans has never faced before.
But they’re doing it anyway because they, like you and me, know that this country is stronger when we stick together.
They know the soul of this nation is worth fighting for, George.
Now, I believe that we will win tonight, and I intend to see this fight through to the very end — on that, I give you my word as a Biden.
But, no matter the outcome of this race, I’m so proud of what we have accomplished together.
We’ve done so much more than anyone thought possible, bringing folks from every part of this country and both sides of the aisle together, united in our love for America and in our love for each other.
Ella Baker, a giant of the civil rights movement, left us with this wisdom: Give people light, and they will find a way.
That’s what we set out to do, George, and I don’t need to see the results to know we have accomplished that mission.
Now, you’ll be hearing from me again soon, but for now, the last thing I’ll say is this: From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Joseph R. Biden Jr.
