Okay. God bless. The great state and. What an incredible team. We have here on the grounds. I want to thank. A tremendous strong principled constitutional is conservative. When he ran for attorney general all the political establishment. Was against him he wants supposed to win. I can't imagine what that feels like. I want to thank our incredible leadership team that is here the men and women across this state. That worked so incredibly hard forging a grassroots coalition. A they're still counting the ballots. So we don't know the exact results. But I want to congratulate Donald Trump on a strong evening tonight. And I want to congratulate. The grass roots. The conservatives across this country who have come together behind this campaign. Okay. When way they started this campaign nearly a year ago there were seventeen candidates in the race. The role of the first four primaries historically has been to narrow the field. And we have seen in the first four states do exactly that narrow the field. Now. At this point we've had four primaries history teaches us. That nobody has ever won the nomination. Without winning one of the first three primaries. And there are only two people who've won one of the first three primaries. Donald Trump. And us. And the undeniable reality that the first four states have shown is that the only campaign that. Has beaten Donald Trump. And the only campaign that and beat Donald Trump. Is this campaign. If you are one of the 65%. Are Republicans across this country. Who doesn't think Donald is the best candidate to go head to head with Hillary. Who believes we do better and elections when we actually nominate. Concern. Then the first four states have performed a vital function of narrowing this race and presenting. A clear choice. You could choose between to. Washington dealmakers. Or one. Proven consistent concern. One week from today. Will be the most important night of this campaign. What a week from today. Is Super Tuesday. Eleven states. Alabama. Alaska Arkansas Georgia Massachusetts. Minnesota Oklahoma Tennessee Vermont Virginia. And and the great state a texts. Okay. Want a week from today the most delegates that are awarded on a single day will be awarded. Next Tuesday. Okay. The role of the first four states is to narrow the field and gives Super Tuesday a clear choice and now the voters can decide. If you want a president. Who will stop amnesty. Ask yourself who has led the fight against a I. If you want a president. Who will repeal obamacare. Ask yourself who has led the fight. Against obamacare. If you want a president who will stand for life and marriage and religious liberty. Ask yourself who's led the fight Def spending. Light and marriage and religious liberty. If you want a president. Who will defend the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. I've been told. Folks in Nevada cattle like their guns. Or as a Texan. I understands. And let Italian something you look at those Super Tuesday states. They like their guns to. And a fuel ought to protect that Second Amendment to stop. A liberal justice from raiding the Second Amendment out of the bill of rights ask yourself. Who was led the fight to defended the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. If you wanna see America's standing. On apologetic late alongside the nation of Israel. Ask yourself who has led the fight to stand. I'd shake up late with the nation of history. And if you want a president who logged day one. Will ripped to shreds this catastrophic. Iranian. Nuclear deal. If you wanna president who will utterly and completely destroy crisis. Ask yourself who has led the fight against there's a radian nuclear deal I danced radical Islamic terrorism. And who is best prepared. To keep Americans. Elections are about choices. And there are clear choices in this race if you want more Washington deals. If you want more corporate welfare if you want more cronyism if you want more debt. If you want fewer jobs if you want lower wages. You got two candidates to choose from in this feet. On the other hand if you on a president that says no to the bipartisan corruption in Washington. That stands up to the lobbyists and special interest that stands up to the debt. That says we will not bankrupt our kids and grandkids we will bring back. Millions of high paying jobs we will say wages going up we will make young people coming out of school at 345 job offers. And will we will ensure. That our kids and grandkids. Have the brighter tomorrow. A greater future. A more bountiful there. That's what this choice is about I want to thank the great people of Nevada. And I want to say. I cannot wait. To get home to the great state of texts. Tonight. I'll sleep in my bed for the first time in a month. And then it will be back to the campaign trail in Texas and all across Super Tuesday. Energizing and building that Reagan coalition. Those courageous conservatives. Libertarians. Evangelicals. Young people and Reagan Democrats all coming together. Tonight. We are one step closer. The morning and there. We are one step closer. To turning the pages on the failures of the Obama Clinton. Disaster and getting back to the constitution getting back to the free market principles getting back to the unbelievable opportunity. That is the American entry. Kite Gil thank god bless.
