  5. Nevada Stump Speech APs: 3 (1 remaining) Locations: Las Vegas "Thank you, Nevada! It’s great to be back here with you all! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your support. What an honor it is to be here with you all see so many friends and neighbors. My fellow Americans, this Tuesday is your date with destiny. The light of a new day is beginning to shine across the sandy plains of Nevada. And that light can be carried on with your unwavering spirits. Two years ago, the good citizens of this state rallied together in the midst of evil. The tragic massacre of more than fifty innocent Americans at the Las Vegas shooting showed the strength and resolve of the citizens of this great state. That in the face of the humanity’s most evil actions, the best in mankind emerged. It shone through when my Hispanic brothers and sisters rallied together in opposition to the discriminatory and bigoted Trump Administration to defend their honor and place in this great country of ours. And the spirit of this state is on display in the faces of working class Nevadeans. Nevada has endured more than most. Each of you have shone us what it means to be American. Therefore, this Tuesday, Nevada must make a choice as to which candidate in this primary represents our American values. It is up to you to determine who shares your interests. Now, I have a tremendous amount of respect for my colleague, Senator Catherine Williams. She has dedicated her life to public service and she would unquestionably better than four more years of the Trumpian alt-right. However, Nevada knows it can do better than Catherine WIlliams. We all know, in the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting, that we need a president who supports stronger gun laws to protect our places of worship, our schools, and homes and not a backwards minded politician who on board with the NRA’s Concealed Carry crusade. You and I both know that we deserve a candidate who understands the plight of young Latino boys and girls. Nevadans deserve to know which presidential candidate has the interests of their workers in mind and who will raise their pay and protect their rights. Each of you deserve a $15 minimum wage, not merely a $12 paycheck. And South Carolina, a state with hundreds of thousands of senior citizens and those approaching retirement, understands that we must protect Social Security and Medicare so no working class American goes without a good retirement. Each of you are deserving of greater than what we’ve getting under Donald Trump or what we could get under Catherine Williams. America deserves a future worthy of the greatest people on the face of the earth. That is why I am running for president. It is time for the light of a new day to shine through Nevada and cast its glow across this country. Each of you have endured the darkness of bigotry and violence and come out stronger. And now it’s time you have a president who will stand with and for you. As the 46th President of the United States, I will get to work on Day One by reforming our gun laws. Unlike Senator Williams, I oppose the NRA’s concealed carry bill. Instead, I will close the Charleston loophole which is allowing dangerous weapons to land in the hands of criminals. I will restore the Federal Assault Weapons Ban, boost background checks, eliminate the loopholes, and ensure no military grade weapons can be used against innocent civilians. I will protect your children, churches, concerts, and communities. Second, we must stand for our Latino brothers and sisters. On Day One, I will restore DACA and halt construction on the border wall. We will give each and every member of the caravans the chance to be properly vetted and welcomed into the American family. And mark my words, we will pass comprehensive immigration reform to ensure every child can become a U.S. citizen and every undocumented worker without additional criminal violations receives legal status and has the opportunity at citizenship. Third, we must stand for the many residents of this state who are proud union members. Nevada has one of the highest percentages of its workforce in unions. As president, I will enact the Employee Free Choice Act, strike back against state attempts to pass Right to Work Laws, and I will raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour so no Nevada worker goes home with less money than they have earned! And fourth, I will stand for our seniors. A significant number of our friends and neighbors here in Nevada are elderly Americans. One of the promises of this country is that every American can enjoy a fruitful retirement. That is why I pledge to each of you today that I will protect Social Security and Medicare from the onslaught of those on the far-right and in even in our party who would even consider negotiating your benefits. I pledge to you that my administration will keep your retirement safe and sound so no South Carolina senior is thrown out of their home or has their retirement interrupted. My friends, these ideas and more are just the beginning of what is in store for America. May each of you join me today in pursuing a new and brighter day as a country! Tuesday is your day to shine the light and spirit of this country. Get out to polls! Call your friends and your neighbors. And join us on this journey towards the dawning of a new day in the United States! Thank you all. God Bless each and everyone of you. And God Bless America!"
  6. South Carolina RALLY APs: 12 (4 remaining) Locations: Charleston, Columbia, Mt. Pleasant _________________________________ U.S. Senator David Bautista "Thank you South Carolina! What an honor! Gun violence has become an unprecedented epidemic here in America. Senator Catherine Williams believes that the best way forward is concealed carry reciprocity. The prevailing rallying cry by lawmakers like Senator Williams and the NRA suggests that a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Studies have shown that arming citizens actually increases violent crime and encourages hostile confrontation. In fact, a study of 160 active shooter incidents found that only in five instances did a good guy with a gun stopped the bad guy, whereas in 21 cases the bad guy was stopped by a good guy without a gun. That's right: the good guy without a gun is doing more good than the good guy with a gun. In countries with stricter gun laws, such Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, France, and Germany, there are less than five homicides per per one million people. Meanwhile in the United States, that number is closer to thirty. The facts say it loud and clear. We need more common-sense gun regulations, not less, starting with universal background checks, and Martin Arroyo agrees. Just last year, the FBI conducted a study of 63 active shooters between the years 2000 to 2013, including Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza, which found that a majority of them had obtained their firearms legally to prepare for an attack. This was also the case right here in Charleston with the mass murderer Dylann Roof, who was able to legally purchase a firearm despite having a felony charge due to South Carolina law not requiring background checks on private gun transactions. The report also stated that perpetrators on average demonstrated 3 to 4 stressors in the year before they attack, including mental health issues, financial problems, marital problems, drug abuse, and conflicts with family members or at school. There is a very clear pattern for us to detect troubled individuals before they can get their hands on these dangerous arms. These common-sense gun laws will help to protect responsible gun owners and keep firearms out of the hands of those who would seek to do us harm. Martin Arroyo won't sweep our gun violence epidemic under the rug. He'll fight for universal background checks, and take on the NRA. That's why we must elect him president! Thank you!" The Next President of the United States of America Martin Arroyo "Thank you, South Carolina! It’s great to be back here with you all! Thank you Senator Bautista for your support! My friends, let’s hear another round for the great David Bautista! What an honor it is to return here and see so many familiar faces! My fellow Americans, we are on the cusp of history. Light is beginning to shine through the palmetto trees here in South Carolina. This Tuesday, it will be your turn to take up the torch and lead our country forward towards the new day dawning for America. Five years ago, the good citizens of this state rallied together during the darkest of times. When the sick white supremacist, Dylan Roof, brought evil upon the city of Charleston with his attack on worshippers at Emanuel African Methodist Church, the state of South Carolina came alongside one another and stood up for justice and equality. Through the roughest of days and darkest of nights, South Carolina has continued to shine the light of what it means to be an American. It means setting aside the disagreements over ideology and instead embracing each other’s humanity. This Tuesday, South Carolina must make a choice as to which candidate in this primary represents their values. It is up to you to determine who shares the Palmetto State values of community and compassion. Now, I have a tremendous amount of respect for my colleague, Senator Catherine Williams. She has dedicated her life to public service and she would unquestionably better than four more years of the Trumpian alt-right. However, South Carolina knows it can do better than Catherine WIlliams. South Carolina knows that we need a president who supports stronger gun laws to protect our places of worship, our schools, and homes and not a backwards minded politician who on board with the NRA’s Concealed Carry crusade. You and I both know that we deserve better than a candidate of a different race lecturing an African-American senator on what it means to be black; especially considering the more important issues pertaining to social justice and racial equality. South Carolinians deserve to know which presidential candidate will fight to protect their shores and fisheries from the offshore drilling that has sucked billions out of local economies with dangerous oil spills. And South Carolina, a state with hundreds of thousands of senior citizens and those approaching retirement, understands that we must protect Social Security and Medicare so no working class American goes without a good retirement. I know the good citizens of South Carolina are ready for greater. Each of you are ready for the dawning a new day in America! That is why I am running for president; because the spirit of South Carolina gives me hope for the future of this country and is shining the light of a new day across this country. Each of you have endured the darkness of bigotry and come out stronger. And now it’s time you have a president who will stand with and for you. As the 46th President of the United States, I will get to work on Day One by reforming our gun laws. Unlike Senator Williams, I oppose the NRA’s concealed carry bill. Instead, I will close the Charleston loophole which is allowing dangerous weapons to land in the hands of criminals. I will restore the Federal Assault Weapons Ban, boost background checks, eliminate the loopholes, and ensure no military grade weapons end up in the streets or in the hands of white supremacists. We will make sure no more Dylan Roofs can walk into our churches or schools. I will protect your children and communities. Second, we must reinvest in the African-American community. We need a president who is committed to the freedom and economic prosperity of each and every black American. That is why I will establish the 21st Century Civil Rights Act and the 21st Century Voting Rights Act to end racial profiling, prohibit discriminatory voting laws, and expand federal education funding to minority schools so no young black boy or girl is behind any other race in the classroom. Third, we must protect our environment starting with our homeland. We all know that the big oil lobby wants offshore drilling. But as president, I will keep South Carolina shores clean and the Palmetto renewable economy expanding by ending oil subsidies, expanding funding for clean fuels, and banning the practice of offshore drilling. No risk of oil spills, just clean beaches and a safer South Carolina for our children. And fourth, we must stand for our seniors. A significant number of our friends and neighbors here in the Palmetto State are elderly Americans who have helped make this country great. One of the promises of this country is that every American can enjoy a fruitful retirement. That is why I pledge to each of you today that I will protect Social Security and Medicare from the onslaught of those on the far-right and in even in our party who would even consider negotiating your benefits. I pledge to you that my administration will keep your retirement safe and sound so no South Carolina senior is thrown out of their home or has their retirement interrupted. My friends, these ideas and more are just the beginning of what will be a great and glorious day for this country. The sunrays are bursting through the palmetto leaves and now it’s South Carolina’s time to shine before the world in standing for the values we hold dear. Let’s do this together, South Carolina! Join our campaign and journey as we bring in a new day for America! Thank you! God Bless you all! And God Bless the United States of America!"

  8. ROUND 1 Fundraiser #3 (2 APs... 26 used out of 30) Type: Gala Location: Los Angeles, CA Targets: Planned Parenthood, Women's Rights Groups, NARAL, etc "Thank you my friends! It's a pleasure to be with you tonight. I come before you humbled by the opportunity to stand with each and everyone for women's rights rights. Nationwide, Americans are realizing that the rights of women are under assault by a far-right agenda pushed by extremist elements in the White House and Senate majority. And it is our responsibility to stand for women and their rights to equal pay, reproductive health, and representation. I would not be the man I am today without the presence of strong women in my life. My brave mother Maria raised me. My beautiful wife Sophia, an accomplished lawyer, has shaped me. And my young daughter teaches me everyday about the challenges faced by our wives, sisters, and daughters in the United States. I know that we need a revolution for the rights of women in this country. For too long, women have lived without equal pay for equal work. For too long, women in the workplace have been subjected to sexual harassment and misconduct by their male co-workers without consequence. For too long, their rights to reproductive health care have been to infringed upon by overzealous politicians on the far-right. And for too long, we have treated women's rights as a mere talking point rather than an agenda. We need a Democratic Party that is committed to women. And that will not happen if we nominate the wrong candidate in this primary. I have a great deal of respect for Senator Williams. But there is an underlying reason that she has the support of every single pro-life Democrat. Nearly all of her elected supporters and endorsements come from those who oppose the right of a woman to choose. She is not committed to protecting and advancing reproductive rights today and her ledger of support indicates she will not govern with them at the front of her mind. We can do so much better as a country than Catherine Williams. As President, I will make sure American women finally enjoy the same fruits of equality, liberty, and opportunity afforded to men. First, I will defend and expand reproductive rights for women. I will not only veto any bill that cuts funding for Planned Parenthood, but I will double funding for organizations committed to women's health and enact universal healthcare to ensure every woman has access to whatever they need. Second, I will enact the Equal Rights Amendment and stringent criminal penalties for sexual misconduct to make sure every woman can earn their fair share in the workplace without fear of harassment. Third, my administration will be the most diverse administration in history. I pledge to appoint more women to leadership positions than any position in U.S. history. We will be committed to the cause of our women because we need a president and administration committed to their rights. Therefore, I ask you to support and donate to our campaign. With your help, we can live to see the new day when every young girl in this country can grow up and live out their wildest dreams. Thank you! God Bless you all! And God Bless the United States of America!"
  9. ROUND 1 Fundraiser #3 (2 APs... 26 used out of 30) Type: Gala Location: New York, NY Targets: American Federation of Teachers, National Education Association / United Federation of Teachers, Teacher Advocacy Groups "Good evening ladies and gentlemen. It's a pleasure to be with you all here today. I come before you humbled by the opportunity to speak on the issues that matter most to the people you all represent. Nationwide, Americans are waking up to the reality that our education system is not to the standard we have strive to achieve for so long. As politicians in Washington have twiddled their thumbs, teachers across the country have taken up the responsibility of fighting for their futures and our children's futures. Teachers in places like West Virginia and Oklahoma have stood up to the political establishments of their states and successfully lobbied for increased teacher pay. It is simply ridiculous that in a state like Oklahoma, the average annual income for a high school teacher is not only the lowest in the country, but some reports show that gas station attendants in the state make more a year! Is this how we repay our teachers? Is this how we repay those who are preparing our next generation to navigate the world? I believe that teachers unions play a vital role in both advocating for our children and for the well-being of our teachers. The political elites like to say they believe in teachers and they value teachers but time and time again they've fallen short. They actively seek to strip collective bargaining away from public school teachers. They cut teacher pensions without any regard for how such an action can have devastating consequences on the lives of educators. Not only have their actions been in direct opposition to the interests of teachers, now their rhetoric has shifted into degrading the very profession. Their anti-teacher bias has now seeped into the mainstream, exposing what we've known existed for quite some time. The son of the president himself has stated that, "you don’t have to be indoctrinated by these loser teachers." This degradation must end ladies and gentlemen. Our teachers deserve more than the venomous words of a spoiled rich boy defining the fundamental role they fill as nurturers and stewards of the future generations. Our teachers and students deserve a president not only dedicated to education reform, but someone who understands the struggles they face. We need a president who sees that low salaries and lack of professional development leads to low retention rates of our teachers that have an adversely negative impact on our students. Overcrowding and long work hours take away from our teachers being able to be guiding forces in our children's lives. We deserve a leader who will tackle these issues head on. I have the agenda and the vision to restore confidence in the education profession. My agenda is built on pragmatic solutions and personal experience. I attended Inglewood High School in Los Angeles County where many of the values I hold dear were formed. Despite difficult economic circumstances, my teachers poured their hearts and souls into me and my fellow students. These teachers weren't "losers" but heroes who gave me a shot when so many others would have thrown me by the wayside. My teachers played a key role in making me the man I am today and I am ready to empower them to play that same role for students everywhere. Under an Arroyo Presidency, I will work to double education funding for public schools by the year 2028 to modernize and equip our teachers and principals with all the resources they need to deliver for our children. I will push for paid leave for our teachers as well as Americans everywhere. I believe in 15 weeks of paid family and medical leave with a minimum two-thirds wage replacement rate. I will protect our LGBT teachers by pushing for a constitutional amendment ensuring equal protection for all workers regardless of their sexuality, ethnicity, gender, or race. I will fight back against Republican anti-union Right-to-Work efforts and protect collective bargaining rights for teachers unions across the country. I will do everything in my power to work towards increasing teacher pay nationally. I am ready to be the president who will fight for you. With your support and contributions to this campaign, I can deliver on the promise of restoring the respect and dignity of our teaching profession. I am ready to fight against those who call our teachers "losers" and instead seek to raise them up. We need to be bold in our support of teachers everywhere. The famous education advocate John Dewey once said, "The most important attitude that can be formed is that of desire to go on learning." Let's empower and embolden our teachers to be the change-makers in the lives of their students. Now is the time for action and I am ready to deliver. Thank you all and God bless!
  10. ROUND 1 Fundraiser #2 (2 APs... 28 used out of 30) Type: Gala Location: Washington, D.C. Target: Gun Control Activists, Brady Campaign, etc. "Thank you! It’s my pleasure to join you all this evening. Tonight, we assemble to remember those who have fallen to gun violence in America. We honor their memory with our words and actions. I salute the Brady campaign and all champions of common sense gun law reform. They are fighting the good fight to ensure the United States is safe from the scourge of gun violence and have persevered despite years of opposition from the NRA. They do not receive the recognition they deserve, but we hope to change that tonight, for the sake of our children and communities. Our fight is one to both protect our children and their dreams and remember those hopes and ambitions were snuffed out by the dark spite of a gunshot. Let us have a moment of silence to remember for all those whose lives were cut short too soon. (silence) Thank you. I was just two years past high school graduation when I remember hearing about the Columbine shooting. I was sitting in my dorm room at Georgetown when the news flashed across my small television screen. And it sunk in that these were kids the same age of classmates and friends of mine who were still attending high school back home in Inglewood. It shook me to my core that children my own age were helplessly left out to fend for themselves. And it brought out a realization in me that our gun laws are fundamentally flawed. Since that dark April day in 1999, we've seen countless school shootings and gun violence. Nearly one third of all mass shootings in the world happen in the United States. Our hearts ache at the memories of Virginia Tech in 2007, Fort Hood in 2009, Aurora and Sandy Hook in 2012, Charleston, Orlando, and Las Vegas. These are just a few of the many places of this country that have been forever scarred by the evil of gun violence. Hundreds of mothers and fathers separated from the children and loved ones. Brothers and sisters waking up to the realization that the seat next to them at the kitchen table will never be filled again by their passed sibling. No parent should ever have to lay their child to rest and mourn their loss. The time is long overdue for gun reform. Yes, we hold dear our second amendment. But even closer, we cherish our humanity and children. And we need a president who stands in solidarity with the victims of gun violence and shares their resolve to ensure an end to mass shootings and senseless violence. Over the last few weeks, I have grown increasingly alarmed at the willingness of some candidates in this race to dismiss the security of our children to pacify the NRA. It pains me that Senator Williams, someone who I otherwise have respect for, would so shamelessly endorse concealed carry and the loosening of gun laws. If the Democratic Party nominates Catherine Williams, we will set back the Brady campaign and the efforts for responsible reform back several generations. This is a make or break moment for our movement and the country. The future security and safety of our children will break with Catherine Williams. But as president, I assure that we will make the greatest strides towards a safer America than under any other administration in history. We need a president who understands our commitment to the second amendment must be balanced with our humanity. I value the second amendment. But I value our children even more. That is why I will pursue the following mission. First, I pledge to each and everyone of you that I will veto any bill the will endanger our youth. Unlike Senator Williams or the Republican candidates, I will oppose concealed carry and any bill that puts more guns onto our streets. Second, we will reinstate the federal ban on assault weapons and all gun magazines with high capacity. You don't need an AR-15 to hunt a deer or protect yourself from an intruder. Nor do you need one hundred hundred plus rounds packed into one clip. Third, we need to close the loopholes and assure mandatory background checks into the medical and legal histories of every gun purchase. If you are a responsible American who loves this country and respects society, then you can be trusted with a gun. But we must make sure that any person with criminal violations or violent tendencies is unable to get their hands on a deadly weapon. No more loopholes. We need honesty and transparency in weapons sales. jAnd fourth, we have to regulate the production of weaponry. Therefore, I pledge to pass a federal ban on 3-D printing guns. No one in their basement should be able to skirt the law by printing out a military grade weapon capable of massacring hundreds. This will my mission as president and ours as proud Americans. To reform our gun laws and make sure no child has to fear for their safety when going to school, playing in their front yard, or going to church service. I ask for your support and help on this mission. If we come together and stand up for the safety of our brothers and sisters, a new day will dawn for this country where we no longer mourn another school shooting but instead celebrate our children going off to college, beginning families, and living their dreams. Thank you my friends. God Bless each and everyone of you. And God Bless the United States of America!"

  12. PRESS RELEASE #008 SENATOR MARTIN ARROYO PRESS SECRETARY BENJAMIN ABRAMOV Arroyo "Sweeps Iowa and New Hampshire" WATCH LIVE: Senator Addresses Supporters in Manchester, NH (Arroyo walks onstage with his family to "High Hopes." He waves to the crowd and then begins to speak) "Thank you, my friends! Tonight, we have made history. Only three times in the last sixty years has a non-incumbent won both the Iowa caucus and the New Hampshire primary. Both of the previous two gentlemen went on to become the nominee. And I am confident that we will continue that streak! Thank you to the good people of Iowa and everyone here in New Hampshire for your support! Thank you to my friend, Senator Matt Williams of Ohio, for his passionate support in the Hawkeye State. And my sincerest thanks to the great Senator David Bautista for his joining me here in the Granite State! We will look back on this evening, many years from now, with fond remembrance. For tonight marks the beginning of great change in America. The whole world beheld each of you stand up, point towards the horizon, and choose the dawning of a new day for our country. After four long years of darkness, the first rays of light are peaking over the fields of Iowa and the shores of New Hampshire. A great new era is coming for the United States with opportunity, prosperity, and justice for all. A new day is coming when blue-collar Americans, whether it be in the busy streets of Manchester or the country roads near Des Moines, can wake up with the promise of a good paying job and an economy that benefits them. I see a new day when every child can attend college, earn their degree, and begin life without the ball and chain of debt holding them down. A new day where the prosperity and success on Wall Street is made honestly and where public servants on Pennsylvania Avenue serve honorably. I see the sun rising on an America where all of God's children are blessed with every tool and resource imaginable to pursue and achieve the unimaginable. And today, the great citizens of Iowa and New Hampshire illuminated the skies with the hope of that dream becoming a reality! We have a long way to go and many more friends to meet. But the dark days are coming to an end, the sun rising, and America is ready to seize the new day before us! Thank you! God Bless each and everyone of you! And God Bless the United States of America!"

  16. New Hampshire RALLY APs: 8 (10 remaining) Locations: Manchester, Nashua ________________________ U.S. Senator David Bautista "Hello, New Hampshire! It is my privilege to be here today to speak on behalf of my good friend Martin Arroyo. Like me, Senator Arroyo understands the importance of a fair and competitive economy that guarantees equal opportunity, in a time where the top 1% of the population owns more than 50% of the world's wealth. A decade ago, we had to bailout our largest financial institutions because they were too big to fail. The bailout cost up to $700 billion, making it more expensive than our annual military budget, and far more than Medicare for All and Green New Deal combined. And Americans still haven't gotten a return on that investment. No new regulations were established to ensure that something like that didn't happen again. Nothing. That is simply ludicrous. At the most recent presidential debate, Catherine Williams made vague promises for reform on financial regulation, but sings a different tune when the Wall Street execs pass her a few million. Depending on what day of the week it is, Senator Williams will probably tell you that she believes that we have too many "burdensome rules" hindering Wall Street and that we should actually deregulate them further. I'm telling you that's the wrong direction to go in. We need more regulations, not less. We need a president who will fight for the people rather than the fat cats, and whose values don't shift depending on how many zeroes are on the check. Martin Arroyo is the man for the job. He will put real economists in the Treasury that will create a sustainable budget that works for working people. He'll make our financial industry more stable and competitive by breaking up the big banks that crashed our economy in 2008 and strengthening our antitrust laws. He'll reinstate Glass-Steagall to prevent banks from gambling away your hard-earned savings, and implement corporate tax reform and a speculation tax to ensure that they pay back their debt to the American people. And he will implement campaign finance reform to prevent Goldman Sachs lobbyists and mega-donors from buying out politicians like Catherine Williams and Donald Trump. Senator Arroyo has proven time and time again that he is someone you can trust when it comes to delivering the hard financial reforms we've been waiting for, and that is why we must elect him President of the United States. Thank you." The Next President of the United States of America Martin Arroyo "Thank you New Hampshire! It’s great to be back here with you all! Thank you Senator Bautista for your support! My friends, this Tuesday, we will take the first step forward towards a new day for America. The sun is rising, a new day is dawning, and the first rays of sunlight are peeking over the sandy shores along U.S. Route 1 and shining upon the great people of New Hampshire! New Hampshire is called the Granite State for a reason. The citizens of this state are rock solid in their values, beliefs, and patriotism. Every four years, the proud progressive voters of this state remind America that we deserve a president who knows what he believes and has the right vision for a better country. You hold us accountable. You make sure we elect those who will fight for the interests of the people instead of the big corporation. And most importantly, you remind us of what it means to be an American: unwavering in our beliefs and commitment to creating a more perfect union. This Tuesday, you have a choice. And I trust New Hampshire to make the right one. Now, I have a tremendous amount of respect for my colleague, Senator Catherine Williams. She has dedicated her life to public service and she would unquestionably better than four more years of Donald Trump or his far far-right toadies in the White House. However, simply being better than the Trump Republican Party is not the best we can do. New Hampshire knows that we can do better than a career politician whose campaign is bankrolled exclusively by bankers and hedge fund managers on Wall Street. Unlike some in this race, New Hampshire understands that the real power in this country lies in the hands of working Americans, not in the private beach houses at Martha’s Vineyard. And New Hampshire knows firsthand the trauma caused by rapid deregulation, something Senator Williams does not appear to understand. In 2000, the Granite State rejected the child born of a political dynasty and instead voted for a war hero who believed America was greatest when itss public servants ran their campaigns on the donations of everyday Americans. It was twenty years ago that the Granite State voted for a great man named John McCain who rejected the elites and ran his campaign on message of no-nonsense. And this year, New Hampshire can make its voice heard loud and clear again as the moral compass and political backbone of this country. The Granite State can reshape the race and stand for its values and interests this Tuesday! I ask for your support because I am fighting for what we believe in. Working and middle class jobs. Honesty and integrity in Washington and on Wall Street. Healthcare reform that truly delivers coverage for all Americans. As your president, I will lead this country to accomplish these goals with the firm convictions of the state of New Hampshire. And just to remind myself everyday of the good citizens of this state, I will place a granite stone right on the Resolute Desk. We need a Commander in Chief with the vision and strong core to pursue and enact the vision to lift America to new heights. As your president, I will begin by fighting for America’s working and middle class. Instead of deregulating Wall Street and doing favors for hedge fund managers, I am going to make sure the public and private sectors work together for the betterment of the American people. In New Hampshire, tens of thousands of citizens depend on manufacturing jobs. Many find work in Manchester at the Segway factory or in Nashua at the Floppy Disk plant. I am going to deliver for the good working class citizens of this state by incentivizing job creation through corporate tax reform and raising our minimum wage to $15 an hour. Each and every worker in this state will go home with more take home pay than under any other candidate in this race! Second, I pledge to enact Medicare for All! Here in New Hampshire, the plurality of jobs in cities like Nashua and Manchester are found in hospitals and pediatric offices. I pledge to invest in this state by making sure every American has access to healthcare insurance, public or private. Third and finally, I will restore honor, integrity, and ethics to Washington D.C. and Wall Street. I pledge to appoint justices to the Supreme Court who will overturn the corrupt Citizens United ruling to ensure no presidential candidate, Republican or Democrat, can override the resources and will of the people with the backing of Wall Street. I will enact the 21st Century Glass-Steagall Act to break up banks that are too big to fail. And I will work to protect all future special prosecutors from the corrupting hands of those being invested. This Tuesday, the state of New Hampshire has the opportunity to shape the path forward for our country. Join this campaign, my friends, and remind the American people of the strong and unbending values of your state. For you make this country great! And New Hampshire will help lead the way as we ascend to new heights and begin a new day as America! Thank you my friends! God Bless you all! And God Bless the United States of America!”
  17. IOWA RALLY APs: 8 (18 remaining) Locations: Des Moines, Davenport ________________________ IOWA TOUR Rally to Victory with Martin Arroyo U.S. Senator Matthew Williams "Hello, (insert city)! It sure is great to be here with you all today. I’m here today to support my dear friend Senator Arroyo. He has been spending so much time listening to and investing in the lives of average Americans all over this great land of ours and he understands their needs. He knows that we need to reinvest in our farmers, manufacturing, and protect jobs from going overseas. Our farmers need our support. We need to invest in them and their crops for they are truly the backbone of our great nation. They provide for all of us and I for one am thankful for the hard work they do. It’s time we committed ourselves to supporting them and I know Senator Arroyo agrees with me on that. However, they are not the only group of Americans that work hard day in and day out. The people on the lines of our factories put in grueling hours and how do we repay them? By sending their jobs overseas and not giving them the protections they deserve. Our manufacturers need a real healthcare policy that will take care of them no matter what. That is why Senator Arroyo and his administration will enact a stop-loss plan that will provide aid to Americans whose healthcare costs exceed more than $50,000 for we cannot leave our own people behind and leave them to fend for themselves. Arroyo has also committed to reform the tax code in order to protect US jobs. He wants to reward companies that move jobs back to the US while raising taxes on those that outsource. Arroyo knows that Americans are a hardworking people and he wants to do everything in his power to protect their jobs and keep them here in the US where they belong. While Arroyo was meeting with the average worker, Catherine Williams was wining and dining with Wall Street executives, the very people who want to exploit the average worker to line their own pockets with even more money. She doesn’t understand the plight of the common worker. This is why I’m glad to stand here in support of my friend Senator Martin Arroyo and this is why we should make him the Democratic nominee for President and then vote him into office in November. God bless you, and God bless the great state of Iowa!" The Next President of the United States of America Martin Arroyo "Thank you, Iowa! It’s to be back here in the Hawkeye State! It’s such an honor and pleasure to be here with you all! My wife Sophia and I can feel the energy rising here tonight. This Tuesday, we will take the first step forward towards a new day for the Hawkeye State and America as a whole. The sun is rising, a new day is dawning, and the first rays of sunlight are peeking over the Mississippi River and shining upon the beautiful plains of Iowa! For the last four years, America has lived in darkness under the Trump regime. Guided by a extremism formulated by radical idealogues, the Republican Party has been hijacked and left us back. They have thrown working class families and everyday Americans under the bus with their agenda. And it has taken its toll on the good people of Iowa. We have seen jobs begin to exit this state while more money is stockpiled in the Cayman Islands. Just last year, Nationwide Insurance laid off 80 workers in Des Moines, double their prior estimate. Wells Fargo has shipped hundreds of jobs out of Iowa and sent them away to India. More and more Iowans are working for less. Since 2000, more than five million manufacturing jobs have been siphoned away from the United States, leaving hard-nosed, no nonsense citizens out of a job and without a future. All across the midwest, blue-collar Americans have been forgotten by the bureaucrats in Washington. Instead of delivering investments in working class and manufacturing jobs, they’re delivering tax cuts for hedge-fund managers. Rather than investing in agriculture and trying to help those who have been forced to endure, the GOP and their cronies are spending their time promising deregulation and reckless tax cuts. If we are to take back our future, we must act. Now is the time for a change! Before I go any further, I must say I have a tremendous amount of respect for Catherine Williams. She has dedicated her life to public service and she would undoubtedly be better than President Trump. But we can do better than just another politician who doesn’t happen to be Donald Trump. We can do better than nominating someone whose campaign is fueled almost exclusively off Wall Street money. We can do better than someone who spent more time tasting and cheese with bankers and hedge-fund managers than meeting with the families affected by these turbulent times. And we can do better than a candidate who, while admitting in the primary debate that she still does not have the specifics of her plan for working class Americans, has called for the deregulation of Wall Street. My friends, Catherine Williams would unquestionably be better than any Republican running right now. But you deserve to vote for a cause greater than opposing the far-right. You deserve a president who will fight for hard working citizens of Iowa! That is why I am running. Because I see a new day with an economy built to benefit each and every Iowan. I see a future where Iowa farmers can earn a profitable income and will no longer have to surrender their ranches and property over to big agriculture to get by. I envision a country where businesses put Iowa and the United States at the top of their list of potential sites for expansion and manufacturing jobs. And I believe it is within the grasp of the United States to ensure each and every one of God’s children has access to free education to pursue their wildest dreams. As president, I will make agriculture reform a top priority on our docket. We will end the era of big agriculture and refocus our policy towards that of the New Deal. Back in the 1930s, the Dust Bowl ravaged our farmers. So Washington stood with them by delivering the relief they needed. Today, family farms and communities have endured an onslaught of corporate farms and conglomerates. So I pledge to put an income cap on agriculture subsidies. Under the Arroyo Administration, no multi-million dollar corporation will take a dime of agriculture subsidies. Instead, we will invest every last penny of it into the good citizens who grow our clean crops and feed our families. Next, I will make sure the midwest becomes the global hub of manufacturing and working class job creation. That begins by rewriting our broken corporate tax code that sends all the relief to Wall Street without asking whether they’re actually creating jobs or not. Mark my words, if a business is hiring Americans and create new opportunities for employment in the Hawkeye State, I will deliver tax relief. I want the public and private sectors to work hand in hand to help main street Americans. But if you’re a corporation that has moved blue-collar jobs overseas to India or China, you’re going to have to contribute a lot more to the United States so we can use that money to invest in the people. We’re going to reward job creators in the private sector and get to work ensuring the public sector does its part in hiring Americans through the National Infrastructure Bank. Third, we will make education once again the top priority of our long-term economic investments. Iowa has already been a leader in education reform as it landed in the top five according to U.S. News. I will follow Iowa’s model for curriculum and work to make sure children growing up in rural states like Iowa have the same access to the same quality postsecondary schools as children in big cities. I pledge to pass universal Pre-K, free community college, and establish a federal-state partnership to offer free tuition to public universities so every child in the Hawkeye State has the support of their community and country from the beginning of their schooling until the end. We need leadership in the White House that will fight for you; a president who understands the interests and challenges of rural Americans. Join me and our campaign. This is not a campaign merely for an office. This is a movement of passionate Americans who are ready to ascend to a new heights and begin a new day of opportunity, prosperity, and hope for the state of Iowa. Join us, my friends! And together, starting here in the Hawkeye State, we can achieve our dream! Thank you! God Bless each and everyone of you! And God Bless the United States of America!"
