Vice Presidential Announcement
Chief of Staff Bennett, Senator Saunders, and Senator Clay come out to the Rose Garden, flanking the podium. President Baudin comes out with Senator Brink.
Thank you for joining me here today. I would like to introduce to you, Senator Bill Brink from the State of New York, who I am nominating to serve as my Vice President. Only a few days ago, I invited Senate Leaders Jackson Clay and John Saunders, as well as House Leaders Speaker Sessions and Leader Linda Sanchez to the White House to discuss the next Vice President of the United States. The name we all could agree on was Senator Bill Brink.
I remember when I was elected to the Senate, Bill, who was in the House at the time, gave me a call to congratulate me. His sincerity was touching, and when he was elected to the Senate a few years later, I made sure to make a return call congratulating him. I have nominated Bill not only because he is a truly heartwarming guy, but because he is a steady and reliable hand. A diligent member of the House, and a diligent member of the Senate, Bill has represented his State of New York well. He cares about his constituents and has always put them first. I have no doubt that as Vice President, he will do the same. Ladies and gentlemen, Bill Brink.
Senator Bill Brink
Thank you, Marc! My fellow Americans, let’s face the facts. We are now on our fifth president in the last five years. Though there have been ups and downs throughout the administrations of our predecessors, I respect each of those predecessors for what they were able to bring to this country. I thank them for keeping this country safe, regardless of the political rhetoric that has spread at times about them. However, today is a new day, a new block on the building blocks of this country. Many are skeptical of this new day. That’s okay. This administration is here to work, I wouldn’t be joining it if it wasn’t.Many have and will ask me why I have accepted the nomination to become Vice President. Marc Baudin and I come from two different ends of this party, after all, I am a New York environmentalist while Marc is an Ohio moderate. In the end, it is a sense of duty why I am standing here today. Marc and I will disagree sometimes, but that will be a good thing. This country has been through some very difficult times just in the last few years: the prison hunger strikes, the border violence in New Mexico, two major hurricanes, and more. I am confident with your help and support, we will be able to make it through the next set of challenges. As they say in the great state of New York where I hail from, excelsior!
