Com to pretend we're unified as a party after coming through very bruising primary which is and it like a week ago. On to pretend reunified without actually unifying than we go and fought half strength. This election is too important. To go into an election at half strength that means we need a real unification of our party which you don't look after a tough primary that's gonna take some effort. We are committed to putting an effort in I want to be apart at unifying process. So that we're at full strength this fall so that we can win this election. We cannot afford to lose this election to Hillary Clinton to pack the Supreme Court to keep the liberal Obama John oh Obama agenda going. We have to be at full strength so that we can win this election and that is why we have to go to the actual effort in process. Unify missed here.

Look we've we've got a process we're just getting started so the last thing and do is say exactly what the end of this process is going to be when we're just beginning this process. The point I'll just make one more time is I really believe that if we're going to be successful this fall we have to unify our party. Where to go forward with a positive message. That Americans see that we have solutions their problems when seven out of ten Americans don't like the path of this country is John and Hillary Clinton is basically promising to keep going on the same path. We have an obligation. To merge in to unify around our common principles to offer this country a choice a better way forward. And that's going to take some party unification to do that we just finished probably one most grueling primaries.
