On Facebook, Obama wrote:
Over the next several weeks, we have a chance to elect lots of talented, diverse, patriotic candidates who represent what’s best in the American spirit. So if you don’t like what’s going on right now, don’t boo. Vote. When you vote, you have the power to make sure a family keeps its health insurance. When you vote, you have the power to make sure we strengthen laws that protect women in the workplace from harassment and discrimination, and make sure they’re paid equally. When you vote, you have the power to make sure our voting rights are protected, and our criminal justice system treats everybody equally under the law. When you vote, you have the power to make it easier for a student to afford college, and harder for a disturbed person to shoot up a classroom.
Democratic candidates up and down the ticket, all across the country, make up a movement of citizens who are younger, more diverse, more female than ever before. They’re Americans who aren’t just running against something, but for something. They’re running to expand opportunity for all of us and to restore the dignity, honor, and compassion that should be the essence of public service. I’m proud to endorse even more of them today and I hope you’ll give them a chance with your vote
