You know I've been around awhile. And I've been around the clintons more than. After being. A couple of years ago bill and Hillary camp doubt in my state telling anyone who'd listen while they ought to vote against me. Tonight I'm here to return the favor. The young child and I was struck when polio. And forced to stay off my feet for two years that experience taught me. We're about terror. And it also taught me how to wait. Which comes in handy when you're the leader of the US senate. More than any thing though my job is taught me that there. Trust. How to distinguish between people or him just to serve others. And people who are in it for themselves. I'm here to tell you Hillary Clinton will say any thing. Do an eight and be any thing to get elected president and we can. I'll I'll I. The American people or time. The founding of government while the cost of caring for a family or meeting daily expenses. Rose out of read. Over the past beer. They think government abuse their office and get rewarded for it it's in the middle class actually shrink. And in the midst of this they've raised a very simple complaint. Who's looking out for. It's not Hillary. I'll have my differences of Barack Obama but I'll give him credit for that. At least use up front about his plans to move. The far love. With a par while not Hillary Jim lot of battery and I don't. She lied about her server. She lied about Ben Ghazi. Gina lied. About sniper fire. Lie even she lied about why are parents named her Hillary. So I ask ms. Sobel question. At a moment when so many feel betrayed by their government. Why in the world would Democrats put forward such a candidate. Hillary has changed her positions on so many times it is impossible to tell where the conviction and that and they ambition began. It's like ten she's in Iran. Could enrich uranium. And when it ordained. Is that she's always argued against them once the backer of the Keystone Pipeline blast here she opposed it. He is to be against Sanctuary Cities that she clients who have four of them and now we're not sure where Syria. Friends. Not since Baghdad saw. Has there been a public figure was such an tortured relationship. With the truth. Quartet played. There's a clear choice before us that is not Hillary. You know what the next four years will look like with Hillary. And you know that if Hillary is president will continue to slide distracted by the scandals that follow the clowns like flops. Two years ago voters delivered a clear verdict on the Obama years by setting a freshman class of rock star Republicans in the senate. And delivery Gaza majority that I promise to make you proud. We've never hesitate to confront the president but would also do the hard work of tackling urgent problems head on and we delivered on that promise. We put obamacare repeal of the president's desk he vetoed it Donald Trump would sign an. We've passed to build a pilot bill the Keystone Pipeline. Obama being noted Donald Trump would sign it. And Obama vetoed it. Donald Trump would sign it. And all that's sad day when we lost Justice Scalia. Better other words Obama. Would not fill this seat. We'll go to Donald Trump next year. And I. So what Donald Trump the White House senate Republicans will build all the work we've done and passed more bills into law in any senate candidate in years. We've already passed the first major education reform more than a decade and ended common core. We may depart significant reforms to Social Security in three decades.

And Opie oh of the so my friends keep the senate in Republican hands and we'll continue this work. And the remarkable public servants and I'm proud to lead in the senate will not let you down. But look at Hillary Clinton and a wide. And I promise you this. She won't double down on the cynical approach that Connecticut senate Democrats aim to revel. These days here's what I've name. As we sit here tonight. A terrified mosquito borne illness threatens expectant mothers and their babies along our southern coast. I just last week. Just last week Clinton Democrats in the senate blocked the bill aimed at eradicating that cars before it can spray. And they want advantage they block the defense funding bill a bill that would support the brave men. We're right now dependent on overseas. Why in the world are these people think public service is about. I don't know but I know the if Hillary Clinton and our resident nothing will change. Photo not ask you to continue. Let us continue our work. I put justices on the Supreme Court who cherish our politics. Let's keep the senate. Pamela collective president and a vice president do. America is exceptional.
